In order to see the AppData folder you will need to go into Folder Options in the Control Panel and put a check mark to "Show Hidden Files and Folders".

The fix for this problem seems to be Deleting all files which reside in PeerNetworking "second picture" at>C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

It's required that you do this on all Homegroup machines in the LAN. After this, you must also leave the Homegroup from all machines and create a new one. It sometimes works best to create the new Homegroup from the wireless machine and join from the wired machines.


Start the Task Manager
Click on the service Tab
Find the "HomeGroupProvider"
and then stop the service.

Restart the PC
