To recap the topic, is the homegroup working now?

Only this service issue left?

hi
the service issue seems to be on the desktop, which owns the home group. so there is no homegroup for the laptop to join. the service error seems to be preventing the home group.

Just make sure all the services specified in earlier posts are running and try again. If not, start the homegroup troubleshooter n desktop and see what comes up.

Check the services on the laptop too of course.

I get an error on the desktop that says it is a network issue.
I run the troubleshooter and it says to get support thru other means.
Not sure exactly what is up.

I will run it again tomorrow when home.

Your Anti-virus or firewall could be stopping the connection.

Tried one more thing before checking out the windows articles.

I ran the trouble shooter again on the desktop.
It told me to check for network problems.
It ran and "refreshed the home group."

I then left the home group on the desktop and created a new one.
Laptop joined it

So currently we are good.
It appears that I cannot get to the files thru the network I have to go thru homegroup, which is fine I can play around with it. will post when I have that working
