Hello All, I have a dilemma of a serious proportion! I have tried absolutely everything in the help menu and online and so far i cannot connect my laptop to my Home Group! I am running Windows 7 professional on both systems (64 bit) and i have tried reversing the home group, Checking the registry for IPv6 connection and i disabled the firewalls on both systems to try to connect but to no avail!!! Please Help!

Update: On the main home computer from which i am trying to gain access to home sharing the IPv6 show no network access..Could this be a problem and how can i change that setting???
