  1. Hi, I'm using windows 7 x64.

    Network discovery and file sharing will not enable. My brother cannot access my shared folder from his computer (we're on a lan).

    I read to enable these services:

    Computer Browser
    DHCP Client
    DNS Client
    Network Connections
    Network Location Awareness
    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    Server
    TCP/IP Netbios helper
    Workstation

    One or two were disabled so I started them. However Server will not start, it says: "The dependancy service or group failed to start."

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks
