    Windows 7 laptop canít leave from homegroup

    I have set up a homegroup with home network and connected my laptop running on Windows 7 to it. Even though there is no problem with the connection, the system refuses to leave the home group. Is there any way available to fix up this issue?

    First of all, disable the HomeGroup Listener and HomeGroup Provider services and stop them. Get into start menu for that by clicking on ‘Start’ button and type Services.msc into the search field. Click the ‘Services’ option from search results for opening the ‘Services’ panel. Select the ‘HomeGroup Listener’ and ‘HomeGroup Provider’ services from the available list and click the ‘Stop’ link on the left side of the panel. After that, double click on those services and wait until the ‘Properties’ window. Set the startup type to ‘Disabled’ and press the ‘Done’ button. Navigate into C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Ro aming\PeerNetworking\ afterwards and right click on idstore.sst. Choose ‘rename’ from right click menu and change the name of that file to idstore.old. Restart the PC afterwards and select ‘Automatic’ from dropdown list next to Stratup Type with ‘HomeGroup Listener’ and ‘HomeGroup Provider’ services. Then, you need to restart the system again and try to leave homegroup.
