    Cannot create a new homegroup due to a no longer existing homegroup

    Hi there!

    I've just upgraded my husband PC from Windows 7 to 10.
    Everything went well except that I can no longer connect to the network.
    After some attempt, I chose to delete all homegroup to create a new one.
    All right on my husband's computer (leave the homegroup), while on my computer (which is the main computer) after leaving the existing homegroup (BigBear-Lio) I cannot create a new one.

    LioSeven on LioSeven PC doesn't exist anymore.
    It's an old computer I had and after that I bought this (with Win 8 as OS and then I did the upgrade to Win 10 one year ago).
    So this homegroup maybe remained in memory since I transferred the files at least 2 years ago.
    Now I'm not able to delete it and if I cannot delete it, I don't have the choice ti create a new one.
    I have tried everything with no luck.

    Can someone help me please?
    Thanks in advance

    I had a similar problem after I updated my computers. I had no option to leave the homegroup. After googling I realized that one of my computers was switched to a different timezone after the anniversary update. I then synced all of the date and times and then automagically I had an option to leave/create a new homegroup.

    A real head scratcher.
