Windows 7: Cannot Leave existing Homegroup

31 Jul 2016   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Cannot Leave existing Homegroup

I've seen similar topics but nothing like this one.

So I have 3 computers in my house, Main, HTPC and Server. I have reworked them recently but now I cannot fix my homegroup.

When I open Homegroup on my Main and HTPC it says "you are invited to join a homegroup" as normal meaning my server has the homegroup on it.

However when I open homegroups on my server it says "Server-PC has created a homegroup" and it asks me to join..So it's like..the homegroup is created on the Server PC but it acts like it's another Pc..therefore I cannot leave the homegroup... so I am stuck unable to create a new homegroup.


Gaaaah right after posting I remembered that my wife got her old laptop out awhile back...turns out it was still joined to the homegroup.

Fixed now sorry! (I hate homegroups..they are so stupid)
