Is your computer set to use a domain instead of a workgroup?

This is the procedure to follow:

1.	Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and then click Properties.
2.	On the Network Identification tab, click Properties.
3.	Under Members, click the Workgroup option, and then type the name
of the workgroup.
4.	Click OK.
5.	Click OK again.
6.	Restart your computer when you are prompted to do so.

Can you post a screenshot of the screen/menu where you have a problem?

Hello, endo-ga
I tried your procedure already, but it had not worked, because the
workgroup option was inactivated and could not be clicked at all.

Hello, Keystroke-ga,
I trid your way too before, and it did not work.
There is no answer at this time.
