disable homegroup, it's only for Win7 machines
Then what? Even with Homegroup I cannot always connect between the 2 win 7 computers. I have managed to connect one way from my desktop to transfer files between each computer but on my Win 7 laptop the desktop only shows up as Media player and not the shared hard drive.
When I boot up the following day the connection is lost and I am either refused permission or the other computer cannot be found,
I don't understand why it is made so difficult to simply network home computers that I own and am logged on as the administrator on each computer.
