  1. I have been driving myself crazy with this issue! My main computer out of "3" cannot bring up the Home Group password to view or leave it nor change the password!! I have been researching this problem for about a month and know one seems to know how to go about fixing it. I tried Microsoft Fix-it with no success and it keeps sending me back to the fix-it download page. So I'm bring this problem to you guys. Now the Peer Networking Grouping controls the features in home group that allow you to see the other systems on your network and also depends on two other services to start, the problem is is that I can't and windows can't seem to start them all at the same time or however they are suppose to start.it seems to be a catch 22 situation one can't start with out the other and vice-versa. Is there anyone who has ever heard of this and tell me how to repair this issue, all help would be completely appreciated.
