A visitor used my Asus laptop yesterday and somehow got a homegroup icon on the screen and no matter what I have tried I can not get rid of it...any ideas please? It is at the top left of the screen and I can't even move it from there. I drag to the bottom of the screen and it will spring back to the top left corner!

G'day Beel, try this mate,...

 

1)  Type "Folder Options" in the search programs and files box...click on folder options...
2) Click "View"
3) Scroll down to "Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)" it must be checked
4) Un-Check  the Check -box
5) Click "Apply"......the Icon will be removed from your desktop
6) Re-Check the Check-box .....the icon will not come back
