    HomeGroup Settings wont' save


    I'm using Win 8 Pro and i'm on a Private network which happens to be my Home Network. I'm having problem saving HomeGroup settings; I went through Change Advanced Sharing Settings then I checked Turn on network discovery and Turn on file and printer sharing, I clicked save and but when I return to the setting page again, the settings are not saved.

    I've tried this several times but nothing seems to be working out. The same thing still happens when I go through Charms >> Change PC Settings >> HomeGroup >>Libraries and Devices.

    Please do anyone have solution to this problem? Thank you

    This is a problem going back to Windows 7 and Vista. You should first check to make sure all the required Windows Services are started.

    Please check your Services. Ensure that the required services are Started on all the computers:
    Go to Start\Control Panel\ Administrative Tools\ Services.
    o Computer Browser
    o DHCP Client
    o DNS Client
    o Network Connections
    o Network Location Awareness
    o Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    o Server
    o TCP/IP Netbios helper
    o Workstation
    All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.
    To change the startup type, double-click on the service name and change accordingly.

    If those are ok then you might consider using System Restore to take your machine back to a pervious point in time when it was working. System Restore - How to Do in Windows 8

    In some cases this problem is caused from a virus that causes a deletion of the firewall rules. Usually repairing the base filtering engine will fix the problem. The link below explains how to do this.
