    HomeGroup disappeared from Windows Explorer

    The HomeGroup has disappeared from Windows Explorer. I can't access to shared files/folders from others computers (which are on the same network) anymore. It was still working two days ago.

    On the others computers, I can normally access to the file shared on the HomeGroup by this computer. So it's still working, but it just disappeared from the explorer so I can't access the files anymore.

    Yesterday, the HomeGroup icon appeared on the desktop, to make it disappear I followed a tutorial which telled me to remove the key :
    from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace

    maybe it's linked with my problem ?

    Any idea ?
