    How do I delete a mystery homegroup?

    I wanted to start a homegroup, but when I got to the setup page it said 'Mark on MORPHEUS has created a homegroup on the network' and I need a password from him to join. As no-one called Mark lives here and I don't even know anyone called Mark that has ever visited my house, I would like to know how to delete this homegroup so I can set one up.

    Hi Tunya

    1. To remove a computer from a homegroup, follow these steps on the computer you want to remove:

      • Open HomeGroup by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, typing homegroup in the search box, and then clicking HomeGroup.
      • Click Leave the homegroup.
      • Click Leave the homegroup, and then click Finish.

    Hello Tuya, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Delete only all the contents inside the hidden folder below, then restart the PC to see if that will reset Homegroup for you to then be able to create one.

About a month ago this happened, again today. I have 80 gig left on my drive. All of a sudden it is down to 9 this morning. I begin cleaning, and every time I delete a bunch of junk I check and there is less drive space left. This went on for a couple of hours, ending up with about 5 gig free. ...
