Windows 7: "invited" to join a HomeGroup with no option to turn them down

02 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

As to leaving the home group via Control Panel, I should have mentioned that was the very first thing that I tried to do, first in Windows 7 normally and then in Safe Mode. It just stays there.

As to my giving somebody a password, I don't know who they are and I most certainly did not give anybody a password. This window shows up every time I boot up.

As to the icon next to the clock it says "Show Desktop" and that's exactly what it does. I am not using any Aero theme or variation upon one. Does that matter? This is 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, I don't know if Ultimate or Pro has something there that I don't.

Dzomlija, I have taken the liberty of putting your suggestions in a word processor file, so as to better to be able to follow them. You seem to have something going there. I'll try to access that Network from another angle but anything that you can add would certainly be appreciated.

I have a doctorate in mathematics - to me computers, besides being wonderful in their own way, are still a mystery. I used them to write simulations and perform analyses, but until recently the OS was something that existed as does the internal combustion machine. I turn on the key, shift gears, and drive. Now, forcibly retired due to damage from being in a car that was crushed by a 6600 pound (roughly 3000 kg) SUV I have become interested in what happens in the OS, but this is a recent turn of events. I really know relatively little about any OS since DOS.
