Windows 7: HomeGroup is currently sharing libraries...

HomeGroup is currently sharing libraries...

Windows 7 newbie. When I click on "Choose Homegroup and sharing options" I see the warning, "HomeGroup is currently sharing libararies on this computer. Some HomeGroup options will be unavailable until sharing completes. Please don't shut down or restart your computer until sharing completes." Yet when I look at the libraries they show as share with "Nobody." I don't recall changing any settings on anything. How can I determine what's causing the warning and make that warning go away?

I have not seen this problem come up before so I can't say how you would go about fixing it. This Homegroup walkthough might help you spot problems with your Homegroup network.

I've seen this before, I wouldnt worry about it, basically your PC is setting up a Homegroup in case anyone wants to join your homegroup, assuming your not using homegroups, just leave the homegroup, problem solved
