After the last Windows Update (04/27/11), my home group no longer works

Original title: homegroup after Windows Update failure

After the last Windows Update (04/27/11), my homegroup is no longer in effect.  That's happened?


I have Windows 7 Professional Version 6.1 Build7601: Service Pack 1 on both machines.

The resolution of the problems of the residential group has done several things, but that did not help.

What works removed one of the machines on the network for several hours and then reconnect to the network.  Don't know why?

    Hi Mikepolifka,

    ؠ What updates did you install on your computer?

    Try SafeMode as the first step.

    Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly, or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic as possible cause device drivers. If a program recently installed, device, or driver prevents Windows from running correctly, you can start your computer in safe mode, and then remove the program that is causing the problem.

    You can also perform a restore of the system on your computer and check if the problem persists.

    If it works fine after system restore you may have to manually install updates one and check the status.

  • Unable to access network printer after the last automatic update.

    After automatic security update KB2660465 and KB2661637 today, I can no longer print or access our office network printer. I think it has something to do with the Windows Firewall, but I'm not sure what to change. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I understand the problem. After the last update, it must have been a change to the firewall. I was finally able to reinstall the FIRST printer by turning off the firewall. This allowed me to see the printer and reinstall it. It worked very well after turning on the rear firewall after installation.

  • After the last windows patchday closing all by showing the video (flash/media player /...)


    After the last patchday (last week) I can't watch videos. If I watch a flash video or a video with Windows Media Player, after a short period (1 to 5 min) Windows shuts itself. When I start Windows again, it does not open a crash report.
    I reinstalled my video card drivers and - because I thought installation may be broken - Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 (redistr.).

    But nothing helped.

    Sometimes I can watch Flash videos all night and then all of a sudden Windows stops.

    Temperature is ok, coolers all run.

    Try a few game demos, they run well.

    I hope someone can help.

    Thank you very much!

  • After the last automatic update, I can't receive any email to any of my 6 email accounts?

    I have been using Thunderbird without any problems and just after the latest Automatic update, happened the other day, I can not receive or send e-mails to all. I checked all the settings of accounts and find nothing has changed. I think it's a problem with the update? I don't see any way to update or install the program without losing emails or information. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I make a new account using the same e-mail settings and was able to receive and send emails on the account that I used. So, just to try it, that I'm back in the original account and now I am able to send and receive emails again from him. I hope he takes care of the problem?

     I then removed the new account and am using the original one now.

    Everything works as it should right now so it's resolved for now.

    Thanks for the replies.

  • Mac restarts after the last security update

    Hello, I upgraded my imac (late 2009) to El Captitan, a few days ago and everything went well and I had no problem to use it after the upgrade.

    Yesterday I tried to update the last security fix (2016-001 10.11.6) and now it will not re - start. I get a clear grey screen with a circle with a line through it.

    Can anyone help please?

    Hello SallyP,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. It is my understanding of your light a circle with a bar symbol backslash when you try to start your iMac. I use my iMac every day and I would be very concerned if he does not start correctly. I'm happy to help you.

    This particular screen means that your Mac could not find a valid system folder from upward. I recommend that you try reinstalling OS X using OS X Recovery. Please follow the steps below.

    To boot from OS X Recovery, hold down the command (⌘) r immediately after start-up or that you restart your Mac. Release when you see the Apple logo. If you can not boot from OS X Recovery, now try the Command + Option + R key at the start of the OS X Internet Recovery*.

    Start-up is finished when you see the window OS X Utilities

    Recovery of OS X

    Once your Mac OS X Recovery, choose to reinstall OS X OS X Utilities window, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

    Also, here is some very useful information on the different screens that display when starting.

    Have a great day!

  • Why is taking hours to load after the last iTunes update?

    I have Windows 7. I don't know even how long it actually takes to potentially - more than 2-3 hours - open 6-7 hours. I woke up this morning and it was finally opened after I clicked on it last night. This is certainly new behavior with the last update. The document "about iTunes" is quite annoying, because in fact it does not specify which version is installed - this should be at the top of the document, I think. However when I run "Apple Software Update" it says "your software is up-to-date." It is not very useful as a music player more if it takes 3 to 7 hours to open - pretty amazing honestly. In addition, it does not show even any UI again. The Task Manager Windows says that iTunes.exe and iTunesHelper.exe are running and showing 0% CPU, so it doesn't seem to do much. That's happened? This is unacceptable.

    More information: it seems to be stuck in the Windows kernel somewhere as "taskkill /f /im itunes.exe" is not actually kill him - even though it claims too - she is still ongoing in the Task Manager and rekilling he said the same thing:

    Good C:\Users\David > taskkill /f /im itunes.exe

    Success: The process with PID 28976 "iTunes.exe" ended.

    Good C:\Users\David > taskkill /f /im itunes.exe
