    As you can see it shows its still part of the homegroup that doesn't exist anymore but I have no option to leave it and it cannot connect ... No other computer in the house can connect to it either
    If i make a new homegroup on my wifes comp which is using windows 10 as well my laptop doesn't even register that there is another homegroup.

    If your trying to remove your home group, then read this tutorial which was written for Windows 8 but still works for Windows 10.

    If you can't leave the homegroup after trying OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO below, then:

    1) Delete all files in the hidden C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking folder on the PC you want to leave the homegroup.

    2) Restart the PC.

    I did that before posting this ... i read all the fixes i could find still nothing ... please look at the screenshots ... one shows the homegroup page in control pannel the other shows the homegroup page still being connected when i right click on the homegroup link My PC I used the one showing the password to show that it at some point somewhere is still conected to the old homegroup that doesn't exist but there is no option on the homegroup page because it shows the error ( as it shows in the screenshot) nor is there an option when i right click on homegroup on the My PC page

    Sounds like you got more problems then with just trying to remove homegroup then. Did you try doing the basic checking of your OS.
    Like running sfc /scannow from your command prompt admin ?? and what did it report after you ran the command?
