Homegroup networking

  User-7BF0BA46-9383-43F9-A74EB865DFA586D5 12:27 04 Jul 2010

Had PC and aptop working fine when one was XP and the other win 7.

Now problem is that I create a homegroup on the desktop, jot down the password, go to laptop - no option to Join a homegroup - only option is to create one - which gives anothr pasword!!!

Says there is no homegroup - !X%$£$$.

Have removed homegroup from both, rebboted both machines and gone through it again and still no joy.

I don't even seem to be able to set up a totally different network.

Any help greatly appreciated
