Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I have tried it all under this forum. Stick with me here, until I completely ran through the troubleshooter, by repeatedly using the 'explore additional options' option (and after deleting idstore.sst), the troubleshooter fixed a random Homegroup error ( but I don't remember what it was!). I believe it took about 3 clicks on the "explore additional options" button to fix the unknown Homegroup error (it wasnt related to the peernetworking grouping or peernetworking identity manager). AFTER this unknown fix occurred, I went back to manually start the 'peernetworking grouping' under 'Services', restarted my computer and it worked!

Best of luck to everyone!
