Problems with HomeGroup Listener Service

    Question

  • I am using Win 7 Pro RTM on a home network.  Every day I get the following two errors numerous times in the Event Log about the HomeGroup Listener Service:

    The HomeGroup Listener service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147023143

    Session "Homegroup Log" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035

    Is there any way to solve this problem?

    cheers

  • I think I may have solved this.  HomeGroup only applies to other computers on the network with Win 7.  So far I am the only one running Win 7 and I haven't created a HomeGroup so therefore the HomeGroup Listener Service wouldn't be running.  Does that make sense?

  • Doesn't matter what I do I can't get the HomeGroup Listener service to start, it just keeps popping up the error above.

    I understand the default settinng is Manual (started).

    Any suggestions as to why this service refuses to start?
