Hello ,

Thanks for your reply, no I don't remember doing that but when I check Services
 NetLogin is not started  when I start it, it starts then stops right away
If the environment is going to be move off a domain to a workgroup I always demote the client PCs first so I do not know if you will have difficulty with that but I would remove the clients from the domain.
