Windows 7: Homegroup Help Challenge

Homegroup Help Challenge


I setup the network and I setup the HOMEGROUP on 1 computer as WORK and the rest as HOME. That messed up sharing. I changed the designation in Windows to HOME and I still can not stream media with other devices! Somewhere, Windows 7 x64 (with 12 Gig Ram) still has an indicator that this computer is a work computer!

Horse feathers!

I have tried removing the homegroup, setting up a new one and somehow there is positive information that always points back to the original homegroup.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Many Thanks!

I got a little challenge for you guys (RAM bug)
Where has my ram disappeared? :P As you can see there is no process using the RAM, and task manager shows the same list with the box ticked to show all processes from all users. This happens when installing bigger programs normally to disk.
