Hi, as you can see from attachment, I get this error several times per day.  In one report I remember seeing something to the effect that two of my computers had the same name.  This machine operates Windows 7.  I am sure that two machines do have the same name - so, how can I change the name on this computer and do you think it will fix the problem? Thanks

None of those errors seem to have something to do with the machine name.

Still, if you want to change it, go to Control Panel->System->Advanced System Settings->Computer Name->Change

Put another name, press OK, then reboot.

HTH,
Dan

Two connected computers should not have the same name, so make sure they are different using the method suggested in the above post.

The second screen says the Realtek card is disconnecting. Is that your network card?  That could explain the Homegroup errors.

Look in Device Manager to see what the Realtek card is and see if you can download and replace or upgrade the driver for it. The computer manufacturer should have drivers.
