I managed to give the wrong name for a "workgroup" when I added a computer to my network. I now have two "workgroups" showing. How do I remove the bad one? I have right clicked on it, but the menu does not include "delete."

Thanks, {redoak}

If you have Xp, you should just be able to right click on 'My Computer' go to properties, then Computer name. Bottom link there will be to change the workgroup. So switch the bad one over the the correct one.

Link for vista

Hope that helps
