Network and sharing but only one computer!

Windows 7 when reinstalling asks me which network but I only have one computer in the house. Should I choose Home then untick documents, printers etc or should I choose Public network?

The difference between Home, Work & Public refers to the sharing policy you're currently using. For example, setting your location to Home allows you to share and is a trusted network. Work functions pretty much the same.
Public is to be used when you're using a public internet connection. It will turn off your sharing and not allow others to see your computer.

You don't need to worry about what network you're on if you're the only computer on your network.

Thanks for that but I was getting print spooler errors stating I am unable to share printers.
