When tracking down the peer networking start up problem this link is all I find although it sounds like there may be more problems with that machine than just this. You might try typing sfc/scannow into an elevated command prompt then hit enter' let it run and see what it says.

Ok if you can't run the sfc/scannow command you have much bigger problems than just the network interface.

The workgroup is generally created automatically when you set up a Homegroup.

I can suggest a start up repair.

Startup Repair

Or a system restore.
System Restore

A virus scan might also be a good idea.

I was actually going to do that about 6 hours ago BUT lol I have a pre installed version of windows and when I contacted HP they told me I can not set my computer from factory settings myself that they had to do it and they wanted to charge me $199.00 so at this point I am screwed. I dont have the money to spend on computer repair and wish i can find a way to do myself

You should tell HP that you will require an OEM copy of what ever version of Windows 7 is installed on your system. Though you could try doing the system restore without it.

You have already paid for this copy when you purchased your machine and most any OEM with any credibility would or should send you this copy free of charge, in fact it should have been included when you purchased the machine. The actual Windows key will be printed somewhere on your HP machine. In many cases there is an image of the original installation somewhere on your OEM hard drive.

There are also other legal means of obtaining a copy of Windows 7 "Home Premium?", though it usually involves downloading it from a third party.

In either event you should think about backing up anything important on that machine to another hard drive or a DVD.
