    Hi Everyone
    I've two laptops Lenovo Win7 64bit and Acer Win7 32bit. Acer has wireless epson sx235w installed on it and it is shared. I have also created a homegroup on it. Network discovery is on and files and folder shared but not functioning. All the related services are enabled but two of them wont start not even manually. I tried to leave the homegroup but for some reason Win7 does not allow me to remove homegroup. Surprisingly Acer can see Lenovo and can acess files through network.

    Lenovo can see and ping the Acer but can not access. When it tries to connect Acer, a box appears asking for user name and password. I use the same password that I use on Acer but sys says it is bad/wrong user name or password. This computer Lenovo has vmware workstation installed on it and I've disabled those virtual interfaces.

    Other problem is lonovo cant join homegroup. It only asks for creating homegroup.

    Any help how I can access Acer from Lonovo and access wirless printer or joining homegroup greatly appreciated.
