My homegroup will not work on my windows 7 PC

by sumria / November 2, 2011 4:52 AM PDT

I went to type in the password in the second computer and it stated that homegroup would not work, ran a diagnostic scan on the homegroup 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 homegroup off of this computer and it states in red that windows will not allow me to remove it from here, tried to run it again and it said windows said homegroup cannot be set up on this PC?? Can someone please help me?

I was the one confused, I was confused between homeshare and homegroup. I need help with homegroup as stated above. Please have the other one removed, I do not need any help with itunes. I need help with the homegroup on Windows 7.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
