Can you spot what's wrong with my screenshot?

I wasn't paying attention and I "moved" something. Homegroup is empty and I believe Network is supposed to be in it. Can you help me get it back in there. Sadly, I can't simply drag and drop it into Homegroup.

Homegroup...should reflect the systems you are networked to, using the Win 7 password-network feature. It therefore cannot include any systems you are connected to which do not run Win 7.

Network is designed to reflect any existing systems (XP, Vista, etc.) where a network existed before and you joined the Win 7 system to.

They are not one and the same and my Win 7 reflects them exactly as yours do...but I have systems in my Network because I joined my Win 7 install to my former XP network.

If you have no networks at all...I would expect the screen that you reflect.

In the top left corner of that window, it says "Open Project", which I assume means you have some program running and tried to open a project inside it. And judging by the bottom right corner, it is looking for an XML file. That's the first thing I notice.

+1 on what hamluis said about Homegroup and Network. Network includes all computers on the local network, while Homegroup only includes Windows 7 PC's that have joined the Homegroup. They are separate entities.
