    Can't log into homegroup on any of my computers since last update

    suddenly none of my computers can log onto my homegroup. They all say one is available, but when I put password in it just keeps running as if it is looking but can't proceed. I am not able to change homegroup either. Any help would be appreciated.

    How is this marked as solved when there is (1) no solution posted, and (2) the bug still exists? Microsoft screwed up the last update. All 3 of my PC's lost their homegroup settings, and cannot create a new one.

    was able to correct issue

    I finally resolved issue of logging in to homegroup.
    Had found post where KRL fixed it by opening services menu by clicking start and then typing"services.msc" and pressing enter.
    Look for following services in the list:

    DNS Client
    Function Discovery provider Host
    Function Discovery Resource Publication
    Peer Networking Frouping
    HomeGroup Provider
    Homegroup Listener
    SSDP Discovery
    UPNP Device Host

    Reset each of these settings to "Automatic"

    You have to restart computers. I had trouble at first with a few of the computers. One would not ask for password when I tried to join homegroup. In order to get system corrected I had to first turn off all computers. Once they are all turned off, when you go into settings for Homegroup, you can create a new homegroup on the first one you try to set up. I set up the first one and it worked. I did have some trouble with a few of them completing the connection. I had to turn off each computer after it was set up and "Leave Homegroup" clicked. Once each computer was able to be set up to work, I then was able to get each one to log onto homegroup. It seems that the only way to reset a homegroup is to make sure all computers in homegroup are off. Then you can create a new homegroup on first one you set up.
