No Network Computers Shown - Windows Explorer

So I had my system running for 10 days without any reboots, but in that time I might have done something to cause issues. I remember trying to remove Homegroup and a few others, without success. Forgot about and went on with my day.

Finally rebooted, and now within Windows Explorer, The Network icon will not show any computers, I click on it, nothing happens.

I have checked all Homegroup related tweaks and none seem to be the cause.

Any ideas? What I may have done, or what could cause this?

*sidenote, but may be related, a few of my programs didn't start up (even though in Ccleaner they still show as apps that start on boot).

If you removed the home group, you will have to create another one or rejoin one for a homegroup to show up again.

Talking about Network, not Homegroup.

lol

Read the entire thing, I said I played with Homegroup setttings, and checked them, incase it was causing issues. The issue is no computers under Network.

Well alright then....lol. Try a system restore to a previous date before you started messing with the settings. Or use your install media disk and do a system repair. That should get you back to where you were.

lol A system restore? Really?

The system is brand new, working perfectly, have everything setup as wanted, I am not doing a system restore that may cause more issues, and files/apps not working afterwards to fix a seemingly simple issue.

I was hoping something here, could cause this, some tweak that maybe I forgot about, or maybe something known here could help.
