    Homegroup Problem

    I have 2 home PC's that are both running 8.1 Pro x64. The Homegroup exists on my PC with a password. When I try to enter that password on PC #2 is says that Windows can no longer detect the homegroup. When I use network inside of File Explorer on PC #2 and click on my PC (PC #1) it pops up with a domain login window with PC #2's location.

    Both PC's are members of the workgroup "WORKGROUP"

    I did full sharing on both machines for public, private and All network options and I also disabled blank passwords on both machines under Local Security Policy / Security Options.
