    Homegroup problem (deeper than i thought)


    Windows 10 both pc's.
    -I have a desktop pc ( I call it A) and a laptop (I call it B). In the past B was part of a homegroup (with another pc).
    B is not a part of any homegroup (i left the previous one). When i go to settings it says i can create a homegroup.
    Now about A. When B is turned off, A it says i can create a homegroup. BUT the moment i turn on B, A says i can join a homegroup although there is no one created. I create a homegroup in Β and then i try to join with Α but says wrong password (of course).
    -B is not part of any homegroup and it is turned off. I create a homegroup in A and then i turn on B to join it. The moment i turn on B, the homegroup in A disappeared and asks me (for A) to join a homegroup.
    Is there a phantom homegroup in B which makes this mess?
    What should i do?
    Please help.

    posting here as well, as i have roughly the same problem, hopefully the fix will help us both

    deleted all files on every PC from the C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

    PC A, clean install of win 10 (this PC was the original creator of the Homegroup on Win7)
    Laptop B, joined homegroup (upgreade of win 10)
    HTPC C Joined homegroup (upgreade of win 10)
    HTPC D, joined homegroup upgreade of win 10)

    PC A & Laptop B is on, PC A can't create a home group, but Laptop B can (i require PC A to be the main PC to create HG)
    Switch on HTPC C and Laptop B changes from create homegroup to join homegroup

    Doesnt work for me, as i explained in the second paragraph, the moment i turn on B, my previously created homegroup in A disappears and asks A to join some phantom homegroup in B.
    Also deleted PeerNetworking files on both A and B doesnt work too. I have tested everything circulating in the net , i m here just in case an expert could give a solution..

    Why do you want to create a homegroup? Filesharing? I never got a homegroup working.
    For filesharing see for instance the thread:
    My Wife's Win7 Macine Cannot Access my Win10 Machine.
    Filesharing is possible without defining a homegroup.
