Windows 7: Remote Homegroup Shutdown

Remote Homegroup Shutdown

I am working on setting something up in my apartment that will allow 4+ computers to share files and movies and such so that we can have a central computer hooked up to a nice TV in the living room.

Homegroup seems the best way to do this, however there appears to be one setup on the network, one of my roommates set it up on accident and I have not been able to take the time when we are both here as our schedules conflict, to get it shut down.

Is there a way to shut it down from my machine without being apart of it? I want to set up a new one, centralized around the main machine in the living room. I have control of every aspect of the network, I am just unsure if there is a way to go about this.

You need to be on the physical computer to turn it off. You could leave him instructions to do it.
