In your taskbar Right click on your network connection icon.
Select open Network and Sharing center.
In the lower left corner of Network and Sharing center you should see "Homegroup" Click to open it.
3rd option down is to leave the homegroup.

Parman, I believe the problem is that they are unable to leave the Homegroup which is a very common problem.

The link I provided shows steps that will usually fix the problem.
