Windows 7: Had a virus, cleaned up, now I can't save changes to homegroup setting

Had a virus, cleaned up, now I can't save changes to homegroup setting

Just like the title says, whenever I click save it just takes me back a screen.
I can change the password, and I can leave and create the homegroup, but I still cannot change any settings including advanced settings.
This is on a friends laptop, it is windows 7 ultimate 32 bit.

try running a secure file check, it's possible the virus damaged some system files.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I did sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt. It ran all the way, and than the cmd prompt closed. I did open it from typing cmd and opening a command prompt, so I'm not sure what that means.
