Windows 7: Want to Restart from Scratch

Want to Restart from Scratch

I have 2 computers running Win7 Home Premium. At one time (at my old residence) they were networked together fine, but when I recently moved and reconnected them, the network between them didn't work anymore. In trying to "fix" that, I'm afraid I may have messed up a few things. In any case, I'd like to TOTALLY eliminate the network between them and start over again.

Not sure how to do that. Is there a "quick" way to get back to a pristine "two-separate" computer configuration so I can start over again? I would want to eliminate all previous folder sharing, etc between the two computers...WITHOUT losing my Internet cable connection running through my "server" computer with my Cox Cable High Speed Internet modem.

I've seen and read a lot of tutorials here on how to set up a network...but can't find one on how to "disassemble" a network with Win7 and get both computers back to a "pre-networked" state.

Thanks for any help

When you change networks or ISP's or routers Windows will reset your sharing and permissions automatically so you will need to re-enable them. The link below shows you how.
