This issue seems a little weird. I have a desktop and a laptop at home running windows 7. They can both see each other, and share files freely, over the network. When I start a homegroup on the desktop, the wizard stops at the Caution symbol screen where it declares it's "currently sharing libraries on this computer. ...Please don't shut down or restart your computer until sharing completes." My laptop can see the homegroup immediately, and can join successfully once I put in the password (passing by the Caution screen). At this point, the desktop can see the laptop under "Homegroup" in the libraries, and has no problem accessing its files. However, the laptop cannot see the desktop in libraries, and small wonder since the desktop seems permanently stuck on the Caution screen before sharing completes. Any idea what could be preventing the desktop from completing sharing? I have ticked off all the boxes for sharing. I tried turning off McCafee's firewall, it had no immediate effect. I have ran the troubleshooter without it being able to detect any problems with the homegroup or my network. Thanks in advance!
