Windows 7: Home Group code 0x80630801

Home Group code 0x80630801

I have two computers (towers) in Home Group. One named Silver and one named Black. From the Silver using H/G I can access the Black but from the Black I can't access the Silver computer. Received code 0x80630801 with error 1068. Peer Network Grouping Service not running. At times PNRP service and P2Pimsvc also will not start. I have tried several times in Services to turn them on but they won't start. I ran sfc /scannow, no problem found. Both computers got Tuesdays Windows updates so I don't think that is the problem because it only effects one computer. I removed the latest thing I installed on the Black computer, *LG BlueRay programs. Networking mapping looks as it should. This all was working for about a week or so when I made the Home Group. I have run the H/G Trouble shooter and it is unable to fix.

Thank you Jacee for getting back to me. I did Google for something like that but must of missed that one. I will have to try it later because that computer is down now. I removed the motherboard and sent it back to Asus. I have no idea how this happened. Nobody but me use any of my computers.
