Hi, we have 3 PC's 1 Laptop and an Apple Mac on the network.

On the Laptop there are two groups one which lets me see the pc's but not the mac and the other which has a different name shows the apple mac but wont let me use it. It is not vital that I can see or use the mac but I cant get rid of the work group. Can anyone assist.

Thanks

The only way to get rid of workgroups is to change the workgroup that the machines are members of.
Workgroups are based on broadcast - there is nothing that you can delete.
Therefore if you want to remove that other workgroup, go to the Mac and change the workgroup setting to match the one that your PCs are in. The workgroup that the Mac was a member of will disappear after a while.
