HomeGroup Listener Error -2147023143

I was having the same error on my computer as well. I picked up a comment on another forum website for an older problem and their problem seemed to be created by having the Windows Firewall Service disabled in the Services and Applications> Services section. I found when I set Windows Firewall service back to automatic and Started it, I was then able to go to the service Homegroup Listener and I changed that service to Automatic and was able to then Start Homegroup Listener.

This at least was a fix I could do without risk to my system as the changes would have been easy to reverse, but they worked for me. Maybe others can try that and post back here with their results.
