it is just that the homegroup wont setup. i've tried leaving and starting from scratch, along with having to reset user access to hard drives everytime you do that (that was a worry at first), but i cant seem to get them to do the home group thing. strange
All machines have Windows 7?

I heard that the system time on the homegroup computers needs to be perfectly in sync for it to work correctly. Other than that I would try a reinstall on the system that it isn't working on.

had a similar problem in early win7 betas; turned out that if either machine had ipv6 disabled homegroup did not register. might that be your problem?

Internet Protocol Version 6...most of the world uses Version 4. It assigns your computer an IP address

Hardly any Internet Providers provide IPv6 so usually it is better to uncheck it to make sure there are apps not trying to get an IP from that protocol defaultly
