When I create a homegroup everything seems fine.  the print password page comes up but when I try I get an error and it doesn't print.  Other computers see the homegroup and try to join but the password doesn't work.  At this point I have deleted all homegroup file on one laptop but the other still says homegroup invite  Suggestions please  I tried the common deletion method offered on net.   Works one but not the other

Make sure in Network and Sharing Center, Advanced Sharing settings, down near the bottom that Home Group is ON for each computer.

Shut down all but one computer (the one that "owns" the Home Group). In Control Panel, Home Group, remove all the Home Groups. Shut down, start up and make a new Home Group in Control Panel. Restart the computer to make sure all the services start (Home Group Services are in Admin Tools, Services).

Now start up another computer and see if it joins the Home Group.  Proceed if it does.

Please post results.

The main thing I've found that prevents computers from joining a HomeGroup is their Time being too far off from the other computer(s) in the homegroup. So, sync both/all their times to the same source (e.g. time.windows.com) then try joining.

If you're not sure how to sync their time to an online time server, you need to tell us what version(s) of Windows they are.
