Thanks mate, I guess I'll go set the values back to default just to be on the safe side.

I'm in Windows 8 too (Pro, x86 due to upgrading an older OEM PC), and I pulled up Services and disabled the two HomeGroup services. After a restart HomeGroup has not reappeared in my windows explorer left navigation pane.

Hello lilsting,

That will do fine as long as you do not want to create or join a Homegroup.

Hello Conditioned,

I'll add it to the list to look into, and post back if I'm able to get it to work properly.

The way provided on here is pretty simple, but yeah no doubt that way is for sure much easier and quicker and you are disabling the services too, but I am not sure if the method provided on here would have done that also.

Either way thanks to all!
