Windows 7: Delete PC from homegroup that doesn't exist?

Delete PC from homegroup that doesn't exist?

Hello, I changed the name of my laptop and now my homegroup sees both the new name and the old name. It can't find the computer with the old name because it no longer exists. How can I delete that connection all together? The only thing I could find was how to remove a computer from the homegroup... by doing so from the PC you wanted to remove. Any help would be appreciated.

I found the solution was to reset my router to its default factory settings.
Hope this works for you tigpoppa

Yes, they will disappear after you reboot all the systems in the group.

The router trick may work too, but the one that's gone will leave once all the systems have been restarted I believe.

I am going to try to help. Personally I don't like the homegroup and use workgroup because it don't support xp and vista. So this is just a suggestion and I cannot confirm this works. You can try to close the homegroup and recreate it. Thats my only suggestion.
