Hi Guys.

I have a workgroup with 5 computers... One computer stopped working as it should so I tried to 'Reset this PC', so take it back to the very start. This seems to have solved my problem, but now I can't name the PC the same way (PC03), as I apparently should have renamed my computer before resetting it... It seems this computername is still stored in the workgroup, but I cant find a way to remove it. Do anyone know how to do this?

Best Regards Simon
