I am not smart enough to use Homegroup. I just network the way I always have and disable the two homegroup services. I think I missed something. I am not even certain what problem Homegeoups solved.

Homegroup is the easier to setup and use version of Workgroups. When you install your OS, you automatically create a homegroup on your network. When you install Seven on another computer on that same network, it will see your homegroup. You put in the password, and its DONE! Thats it! That is all you need to do to network all your home PCs together!

Why more computers when you are... ALONE?

Also, I have ABSOLUTELY no money until I get a job.

UAC

Being one who has usually turned off User Account Control in frustration with Vista I thought I'd give it a go in Windows 7 but set it to the first position up.
It was not too intrusive so I kept it set that way then later I went to use UltraISO and I wanted to burn a disk or a USB key but it wouldn't let me!!!

I actually had to run UltraISO as 'Run as Administrator' to allow me to burn with it!
So what have I done? - Set UAC to zero i.e. Off !

Mine works with no prompt. Set it back to the default level and you should be fine.

Hell, I didn't even used HomeGroups. Why? One computer at home...
It looks like Libraries was the 5th but there was no header for it after the Homegroups section.
