Forget a homegroup

Hi everyone, I want to create a homegroup and my PC says that there is already a homegroup...I had created that homegroup before using a laptop that I no longer have. How can I make Windows 7 forget that homegroup and create a new one? Right now, the only button I have is Join Homegroup. Thanks in advance.

The tutorial below may be able to help you to leave the homegroup to be able to create a new one afterwards. In your case, you may need to do what's in the yellow tip box at the bottom of the tutorial.

Hi all Seasoned users of Virtualisation can skip this but there are a lot of people who assume you have to be running a 64 bit OS to use a 64 bit virtual machine -- this is NOT TRUE BTW. So long as you have the Virtualisation feature enabled you CAN test 64 bit guest machines even when running...
