Windows 7 Network problems - file and Printer sharing won't work

I am no longer able to access my backup storage advice, as I cannot turn File and Printer sharing back on after it has stopped working. Network Discovery will not switch on - Three services are involved, 2 dependent upon the the third, which refuses to function. Any clues?

Check to ensure the following are correctly set:

DNS Client service started and on automatic.

SSDP Discovery service started and on automatic.

UPnP Device Host service started and on automatic.

Function Discovery Resource Publication service started and on automatic.
