    Hi Roderunner, I found Libraries (which was empty) and Homegroup, but when I opened Homegroup and selected leave, I was again told "Unable to leave...).

    Any other ideas?

    I do not think your PC is joined to a Homegroup. See the attached pic for my PC which is joined to a Homegroup.

    Roderunner, there are 2 other pc's, both running XP Home with SP3, and those and mine are all set as Workgroup Computers.

    Having said that I can only refer you to my post #11 and also repeat that I did not create a homegroup.

    As long as the statement that I am unable to leave the homegroup continues not to interfere with the ability of all 3 machines to see each other over the LAN, and to access shared folders, I suggest this thread be considered closed.

    Sincere thanks for all the input.

    Regards, Roy

    Hi All,

    I just had a problem yesterday where my other half had "accidentally" created a home group and futzed the network access to her files and printer. This is a fairly new laptop so I hadn't applied all my tweaks yet. To kill homegroups I do this.

    1. Click: Explorer icon on taskbar.
    2. Right-Click: Homegroup, in left pane.
    3. Click: Change HomeGroug settings.

    Under Other homegroup actions:

    1. Click: Leave the homegroup…

    In the Leave the Homegroup wizard dialog:

    1. Click: Leave the homegroup.

    You have now rendered the homegroup non-operational but it will still appear in Explorer.
    To remove it from Explorer:

    1. Click: The Orb.
    2. Type: services.msc {Enter}
    3. Right-Click: HomeGroup Listener.
    4. Click: Properties.
    5. Click: Stop {if not greyed out}.
    6. Set: Start up type: to Disabled.
    7. Click: Apply.
    8. Click: Ok.
    9. Right-Click: HomeGroup Provider.
    10. Click: Properties.
    11. Click: Stop {if not greyed out}.
    12. Set: Start up type: to Disabled.
    13. Click: Apply.
    14. Click: Ok.

    FWIW!

    Edit: sorry about the numbering. When I pasted from Word it restarted the numbers after the non-numbered paragraphs. Its one list and the numbers should run 1 to 19.

    Hi RG,I had already tried the procedures you list to render the homegroup non-operational,several times,but I still get the message that I cannot leave the homegroup.

    I had also set the HomeGroup Listener and HomeGroup Provider services to disabled, but they were still shown on the list of services, as you would expect.However, after reading your reply I checked again and those 2 services no longer appear in the list.

    Joe,I only have one network defined, but for some reason it is named Network 2.

    All very strange.

    Best regards, Roy

    Roy,

    I'm concerned that the two services no longer show in your services list. They are still there in mine.

    You may have a much deeper problem.
