    I have Win 7 / 64 on my Desktop , and Starter on my netbook. When I set up
    Homegroups, everything worked correctly. ( I also use ZoneAlarm Extreme
    Security and have enabled IPv6 ).

    Currently the Desktop shows " No Other Homegroup computers are currently
    available " but I can access the Homegroup ( on the Desktop computer ) from
    the Netbook. I'm not sure where to start trying to sort it out ? If I
    disable the Firewall in ZA , it makes no difference.

    TIA

    What will make the difference that you are looking for is to remove and uninstall
    ZA. That will solve your issue

    Thanks Peter..

    As I said , originally it DID work. After I posted the message , I went back
    and took another look. I selected DOCUMENTS and SHARE WITH HOMEGROUP (
    read/write ) and everything popped up again. ZA has a lot to answer for (
    along with all the rest of them ) but it looks like it's off the hook this
    time.<G>
