The company I recently started working for needed one of the PCs moved from an office using a domain server to another office running a workgroup.

At the new office I logged into the PC using the username and password for the domain and then went to My Computer properties and Computer Name and changed the settings from the Domain to the new workgroup.

I restarted and then the PC still asked for the password for the domain and I tried it - that wouldn't work and I couldn't change to the workgroup. It won't log into the domain and won't access the workgroup.

What do I do to get it to join the workgroup and stop trying to login to the domain?

This question is urgent, I need to solve this first thing Monday morning (California time).
