I am having an issue with joining a Homegroup that is already in place on my network.  I just joined another computer to it today, so it is working fine.  But, when I try to join it from my computer, something strange happens.  When I open HomeGroup, it tells me that my computer created a homegroup (which is incorrect).  It will not display the computer that actually started the homegroup...only mine.  When I try to join, it prompts for a password (which I have no idea since I didn't set it up lol).  Is there a way to completely reset homegroup or force it to search for or connect to a different computer?

You can have every computer in the Homegroup leave. This will delete the Homegroup. Then start a new one.

Wow...sometimes it's the simple things.  Now that I have done this, I realized that I must have started the homegroup before with my computer.  I reinstalled Windows fairly recently and named my computer the same thing.  After removing all of the computers and then setting it up again, it's working fine.  Thanks!
