Windows 7: Cannot leave Homegroup

25 Apr 2014   #21

Windows 7 Build 7000

in my case none of the above worked, then i found out my windows firewall did not work either. i scoured the net with all the error codes and this solved all my problems.

Everyone has permission to start Windows Firewall in Regedit, but it still gives me an Error 5. Any other ideas as to why this might be happening?

Try this repair tool ...I hope it works.
It registers pretty all system components related in any way to security and firewall settings, also it re-creates all rules and rights for dirs and registry keys.
