Thanks again for the reply. However, I tried this solution as well, but I still get an Error 5 upon attempting to start Windows Firewall. Just like before, BFE started with no problem. Everyone has permission to start Windows Firewall in Regedit, but it still gives me an Error 5. Any other ideas as to why this might be happening?

Try this repair tool ...I hope it works. :)
It registers pretty all system components related in any way to security and firewall settings, also it re-creates all rules and rights for dirs and registry keys.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have tried all suggestions, tips and other sorts on the forum on "How to Leave the Homegroup" on Windows 7 but all of these failed.

Some of the suggestions is to download "re-image" software but to my dismay, it leads to selling me a software of which I cannot afford to buy. So, I think this is not the only solution wherein you must buy a troubleshooting software in order to solve this issue.

I hope this forum will help me. For initial information, I am using a OS of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have a good 1TB HDD, Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4170 CPU @ 3.70GHz, 3700 Mhz Processor, Gigabyte H81M DS2 Motherboard.

Please help. Thank you.
