Homegroup - I get this warning ?

I thought I would Create a homepage , but when I try I get the warning ( X )


so I go to the Registry and check to see if IPv6 is enabled , and it seems to be ok, ( set to 0 )



I'm not too sure what to try next to enable IPv6

Any Ideas please


I am using Windows 7 Professional 32bit


Thanks

This problem is very common and easily fixed.

1. Temporarily disable Firewall and third party antivirus program on the computer for a test.

2. Verify relevant services
=========================
a. Click "Start", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in Search Bar and press Enter.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

b. Right click the "Peer Networking Grouping" service and choose Properties.
c. Please check if the service is started; if not, please click the Start button and see if it works.
d. You may also choose Automatic next to Startup type.
e. Click OK.
f. Please repeat the above steps with another service: PNRP Machine Name Publication Service.

3. Modify IPv6 registry key to enable IPV6
==========================
a. Click Start, type regedit in Search Bar, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.

b. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters

c. Check whether the "DisabledComponents" registry key exists. If so, let's move on the next steps.

d. Double click the "DisabledComponents" registry key and modify the value to 0.

(If the key doesn't exist, please create the key above and assign the value 0)

e. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Just a Note here Create a DWORD -> DisabledComponents
"# Note If the DisabledComponents entry is unavailable, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:

1. In the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
2. Type DisabledComponents, and then press ENTER.
3. Double-click DisabledComponents.

# Type any one of the following values to configure the IPv6 protocol, and then click OK:

1. Type 0 to enable all IPv6 components. "

Thanks for pointing that out mlevy. The registry adjustment does indeed work to fix this specific problem. It's a common problem although I'm not too sure what causes it in the first place.
