Homegroup problem


  • I have an HP Pavillion m9500y and a Toshiba NB205 netbook. Both run Windows 7 64bit. Both have good wireless internet connections and I can access files between them and yet cannot resolve the Homegroup problem My wireless router is a Cisco WRT320N connected to a cable modem. When I try to set up a Homegroup, I keep getting the message that "Windows cannot set up a Homegroup on this computer" I have searched the web for a possible solution but have not found anything that works. Both computers have Windows Home Premium upgrades installed. I have noticed that some of the recommendations on the web (I have tried them all) refer to context menus and other details that I don't seem to have on my units. Is that what the problem may be? Was the Homegroup not complete or up to date after doing the upgrade?

    Any ideas anyone?

  • Hi,


    Thanks for the post!


    Click Start –navigate to the folder: %systemroot%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking


    Do you find the file called idstore.sst ? Delete it then reboot to check if the issue persists.
