Cannot Leave the Homegroup

client has Windows 7 home premium fully patched.

I have attempted to remove from home-group in order to attach to new

home-group created on network.

For Some reason it WILL NOT allow me to leave the home-group

How do I do this?

If you run the Home Group Troubleshooter does it give any kind of error message?

There is a known fix below but you should have gotten an error with the Home Group Troubleshooter so I'm not sure if the following is your issue or not?

Check for 'Peer Networking Grouping' and 'Peer Name Resolution Protocol'.  If these services are not starting:

Go to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking and delete all of the files in this folder. Now restart the computer.

Go to Services again and you should be able to start 'Peer Networking Grouping' and 'Peer Name Resolution Protocol'. Restart the computer again.

When you log on this time check Services to ensure the two services concerned are running.

You should now have full functionality restored to your homegroup.
