    I have to admit that recently I have been trying to clean up my computers by deleting programs and unused files and turning off a lot of start-ups and something else which I did not think I would need them without knowing what they were. OK, so everyday I have found that things are not working right ever since :(

    However, so far, I have fixed problems of audio and printer by making the SERVICES "automatic" and "started." I presume that most problems I have now have to do with services. My networking isn't working right, so I looked at the services dependency and made them all automatic and started. However, I might miss some services for the networking to work right or other causes might exist otherwise.

    My desktop is using Vista while the laptop Windows 7. Before I cleaned both computers (more cleaning on the desktop though), networking worked completely well. But now, the laptop name is shown under the networking of the desktop but not the other way around. When I looked at the networking tab under control panel, everything looked fine and connected. File sharing was fine. Nothing looked wrong, yet the desktop (os: Vista) name is NOT shown under networking on the laptop (windows 7). Please help. Thanks

    Still the non-genuine Windows 7 that you were using in this thread?

    To quote Cookiegal: "we don't support using pirated software so there is nothing more that we can do here and I have no choice but to close this thread."
