    HomeGroup Issues - Windows 10 1607 x64 & latest Updates

    Hi Everyone

    I'm having some HomeGroup issues as follows:-

    - Windows 10 1607 X64 with latest cumulative updates
    - Logged on as local Admin User to Desktop PC
    - Homegroup that was previously working now no longer working (this Desktop was used to create the Homegroup)
    - Instead, under Homegroup see "you have been invited to join homegroup" message
    - Can't see Homegroup or Homegroup Password
    - All of my other desktops & laptops are also Windows 10 1607 X64 with latest cumulative updates also have under Homegroup see "you have been invited to join homegroup"

    I thought perhaps delete / re-create Homegroup would work - except I cant work out how to do this.

    Any suggestions how I get my Homegroup working again????

    Homegroup has had issues since the day Microsoft introduced it. Use standard Network sharing, instead of Homegroup. Less headaches.
