    Networking issue

    I have two computers. One is a tower running Win 7, and the other was a laptop running XP, so I set up a workgroup. Now I have a new laptop running Win 7. I tried joining the workgroup, but I ended up with two networks, each with a different name, one on the tower, the other on the laptop, and when I click on homegroup,therethere are no computers found. I would like to "start over", but I don't know how to delete the present networks. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Hi Jeff,
    I was one of the many who could not get 'Homegroup' to work, even with 2 Win7 computers.
    Then I did this File sharing.pdf, see Method 2. This meant I had to leave my 'Desktop' ON 24/7. I now have Skydrive installed on both with the Skydrive Folder on D: drive. Now I have instant access to my files anywhere, and at anytime.
    O wad some Power the giftie gie us, to see oursels as ithers see us!
