Hi ,

please disconnect it from the network and then try joing to workgroup, if you were not succeded it seems that your dll files might be infected by virus , update your anti virus and full scan your computers, once you done then try if not then remove the anti virus try disjoining and then rejoin, i have had similar problems then solved in that way
