  1. Homegroup


    Can anyone from microsoft explain to me why my home group is no longer working after my computers automatically updated in the middle of the night. I use this on a regular basis. Now i cannot. and to be quite honest i am pissed right off. do the techs at microsoft not test their products before they release them or is it all just a freeforall pile of crap that will only screw your computer up. I am seriously considering switching to Mac as they are way more user friendly.


    can someone explain an easy way to get this function back

    :)
