Homeshare will not work on my PC

by sumria / November 1, 2011 6:18 AM PDT

I went to type in the password in the second computer and it stated that homeshare would not work, ran a diagnostic scan on the homeshare to see what was wrong and I needed to turn on Peer sharing, however it will not allow me too. Error messages come up, tried to remove this computer and it states in red that windows will not allow me to remove it from the homeshare?? Can someone please help me?

I cannot get that far, I must have tried this before and never completed the set-up, now on this desktop I cannot stop the homeshare nor can I go through with it. I cannot start at least two of the processes that need to be started. I removed it from the laptop so at least that one does not have anything on if I can just start over on the desktop. Both computers are HP's and have Windows 7 and I use IE.

Not the samething

We are not talking about the same thing, I am trying do something that is a new feature of Windows 7...has nothing to do with iTunes. This will share the music library, documents and also the printer too.

I am sorry about the confusion, I had been reloading my itunes the day before and then trying to do the homegroup yesterday. I spend several hours trying to make t work but nothing would allow the desktop to be removed from the homegroup or can I turn on the processes needed for it to work? Everything above it the same I just had the names wrong.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
