reconnecting my homegroup

Post by buffm on 26th October 2015, 8:06 pm

I've decided to try and resolve my home network issues instead of relying on jump drives and sneaker net.
I used to be able to see files from my desktop at home on the laptop that i use at home and work. (The work part seems to function just fine).
At home, i've had intermittent access to the files i need but lately, none at all. When i go through the network trouble shooters, it feels like a circle going nowhere. I've tried removing firewalls. I made a new homegroup on the desktop, but can't change anything on the laptop. I deleted the idstore.sst file on the laptop as suggested in a Win7 MS forum. Still no help.
What i'd love to do is start again, but i can't remove the homegroup from the laptop.
I've gotten really great help in the GeekPolice malware forum, so i thought i'd try this.
I feel like i'm going in very frustrating circles. any suggestions or magic fixes would be SO appreciated.
best

Did you try System Restore to before you starting having this problem?
