I not too long ago reformatted my computer and the only user for my computer... But what i don't know is why several of my services that run the background is not making me change any of its settings? I'm just a home user that takes care of the whole network in my house.

If you are using this as a home computer that is part of a workgroup and is not joined to a domain, you don't need (or need to worry) about those services. They run in the background regardless -- I have 7 Home Premium and they are installed and running on my machine; just leave them at their defaults.

well the thing is i have no part in any workgroup whatsoever... I never installed any workgroup that you see whenever you install windows 7 since it asks for a workgroup to join... i just ignored that and now i see it's back again... if this is the default then why you have a choice to join a workgroup at the start of installing windows 7 home premium? why would windows automatically do that in the first place? if it is a default for everyone why I see people online with the same problem as i do and complaining about it in the other websites? this doesn't make any sense... UPDATE: looks like I have problems after all i tried a windows update troubleshooter and look at here

One must have a workgroup to interact with The 'Net [whether hardwire and/or wireless].  That workgroup can have any name the computer owner desires.  If OP runs into any option mentioning homegroup -- that can safely be ignored, a homegroup is not necessary for 'Net operations.

A workgroup is NOT created automatically in any version of Windows...and it's is not necessary unless one is trying to communicate with another system, using a home network.
