Disable Workgroup Password
I have several PCs networked together using a workgroup. All of the PCs are running Win7 Pro or Ultimate. (Please note: itís a workgroup, not a homegroup.) Itís setup so that any of the PCs can access the other PCs. Everything is working fine.
When I first set up this network I had to put all of the PCs in the same Workgroup and give each PC the name and password for each of the other PCs.
I am about to give away one of the PCs and I want to disable its ability to connect to the remaining PCs. I have deleted everything I can think of deleting but the PC Iím giving away is still able to see all of the others and connect to them. How do I disable that?

Second, how will he know the workgroup name unless you tell him? Even after that he'll need to know the login and passwords for your other computers to access them. How will he know those?
For cached passwords, try clicking on Start button, then in the Run box type:
Hit Enter. This'll bring up the credentials manager.
Alternatively, just change your password. BTW, if you're paranoid, format and reinstall win7. How do you know he's not going to try recover deleted files with recuva or something?
