a very strange problem about my homegroup

Yesterday I created my homegroup for my desktop win7ultimate32-bit, all other laptop joined and i tried to send file and its ok. but today i tried to see the files on my desktop from my laptop, it shows incorrect files ( it shows only yesterday file and not up to date), so I decided to leave from homegroup and put all my desktop and laptop to leave my homegroup, then I want to create again the homegroup, it said windows cannot create homegroup on this computer, I'm so panic, I used all the step told in many forum like deleting files in peernetworking folder, reinstall antivirus and many more, please help me, thanks

Updated : when i tried to do the troubleshooting for homegroup, it said "you are not connected to a homegroup" not fixed. thank you

I recommend removing the old homegroup from all your computers. It does not matter what computer creates the homegroup, just that it is created.

Create a new homegroup. Join all your computers to it, one by one.

If this works, then make sure all the shared settings are enabled. Make sure you know where you are storing the files, and that you are looking in the right place (the public folders are DIFFERENT from your default ones).

It sounds like they don't have sharing enabled.

To do this, open the network and sharing center and go to sharing settings. Enable the sharing for those, and do it on all the computers.
