According to that screenshot, you don't belong to any homegroup. It's asking you if you want to join an existing homegroup.

Coo coo. Cause when click on join group, it requires the password, but it isn't the password i have set and i can't view the password. I'll try Chev65's idea later though. Thanks for the help.

I think you need to log on as "Owner" on "Owner-PC".

Then Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Homegroup (or just click the Start button and type Homegroup) and you should get the Change homegroup settings screen.

This would allow you to View or print the homegroup password or just leave the group and start over again.

There again maybe you already did that...
