Windows 7 homegroup problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two computers setup on a win7 homegroup. I have had this setup for years. I just moved and now it isn't working. The two machines are my gaming rig and my htpc. They both join the homegroup successfully, but I can only view files on one of them. On the gaming rig, if you go to homegroup and click on the htpc, you can see the folders but the icons are blank (like the pictures icon below). If you click on the icons, nothing happens. On the htpc, if you go to homegroup and click on my gaming rig, everything works just fine. Any ideas?

Yes, and as usual, it couldn't identify the problem.
