Hi Randy
>It is likely a problem with the registry value that governs IPv6. Please take a moment to read this article How to disable IP version 6 >(IPv6) or its specific components in Windows 7, in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008 R2, and in Windows Server 2008 >(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852) and perhaps give the "Enable IPv6" FixIt a try. Regards Randy"

I have read that article, and I have run the FixIt from Microsoft. It do not help.
The problem occure wen I try to start a Home Group, Then I get that pop-up message that the IPv6 are not enabled.

so I never get my Homegroup up and runing.:cry_smile:

Did you try checking the registry for the "DisabledComponents" value (DWORD 32bit) should be set to zero "0" (no actual quotes nowhere)
Should be located here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\
Using the Windows Registry Editor can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to re-install Windows to correct them. It cannot be guaranteed that any problems resulting from the use of the Windows Registry Editor can be solved. If you choose to edit the Windows Registry please understand that you do so at your own risk so unless you feel fairly comfortable and confident you should probably not use the Editor. Changes made to the Windows Registry can take effect immediately and those that do not will take effect following the next reboot of your computer, and a current backup is not automatically made for you....So manually create a system restore point, backup the registry and export the key you are editing for safe keeping before doing so.

I have the EXACT same problem with my two w7 64 bit CPUs. Wish me luck.

I backed up the whole HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSYEM and opened the Tcpip6 and the

DisabledComponents REG_WORD 0x000000ff (255)

EnableICSipv6 REG_WORD 0x00000001 (1)

What should I do or is my problem different. Trying to start Home group says IP6 not enabled, but the boxes are all checked in properties?

Bradford;
Take some time and read this article, I believe you are not addressing the proper registry key.
You may want to try using the FixIt utility (Enable IPv6) first before scrolling down and using the manual fix.
How to disable IP version 6 (IPv6) or its specific components in Windows 7, in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008 R2, and in Windows Server 2008
