I have a problem with homegroup. I cannot delete my computer from homegroup.

    Question

  • Interesting stuff here is it never joined my other computer in a homegroup but it says it belongs to a home group. So I thought of removing this PC from homegroup. But the following error appears everytime. Also I'm unable to see or change the homegroup password.

    Someone help?

     

    I forgot to mention that both PCs are running Win7 64 and both have been updated to SP1.

  • Hi,

     

    Firstly, you could use the Troubleshooting tool to see what the result is:

     

    Click Start, type homegroup, and then press ENTER. Click Start the HomeGroup troubleshooter.

     

    Also, you could perform the following steps to reset HomeGroup:

     

    1.    Click the Start Button, type "cmd" (without quotation marks), in the search result list, right click on Cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.

    Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

    2.    In the popup window, type the following commands and press Enter one by one:

    Net stop p2pimsvc

    3.    Access the following folder and clear all files inside:

    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

    4.    Click the Start Button, type "cmd" (without quotation marks), in the search result list, right click on Cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.

    Net start p2pimsvc

  • When I type cmd, cmd.exe does not come up in the search resuts.  If I press enter, a black screen comes up with my name.  I put in Net stop p2pimsvc, and when I hit enter it asks me if I want to delete the peer group.  I say yes, and then it says access denied!  So I still cannot delete my computer from the homegroup, and it still won't let me reset a password.  It keeps saying, you are not connected to the home group even though it has me "joined"
