    Hi

    I have an Acer laptop and a desktop and my wife has a desktop.

    My two run windows 7 home premium and my wife is running XP
    Professional. She prints across the network.

    However, we cannot join to the same homegroup and we want to. Can
    anyone help? We have persevered for hours without any progress.

    the two win7's can join the same homegroup, but the XP won't be able to.
    Try setting up the group on the XP and joining the Win7's to that. Works
    on mine. Hope this helps
