    Brink, thank you for the advice! I did try that already. When I stopped HomeGroup Listener for the first time, it didn't start on its own, but Provider does so, continuously.

    Did you disable them as well, and not just stopped though?

    nothing is working. it wants me to make a homegroup to leave it. but it also says I need computers to plug it into first. I've followed every thing to the letter, but could only go so far, then got stuck. what I need is for someone I can trust take control of this thing and do what needs to
    needs to be done. i'll try again tomorrow.

    commander,

    If you are already joined to a homegroup and are unable to leave it, then see if doing what's in the yellow tip box at the top of the tutorial below may be able to help.

    ok, what about deleting the files that show up when I go into "this PC" and then "search results for this PC". except when I tried to do 1 already
    it said I needed administrator permission to do that. but I thought I was the administrator since no body uses this PC but me.
