The "Workgroup" network name is the default name...Did you previously have a working network by that name and if so, could you possibly need another network by that name? It would be easy to simply connect other computers using the second network IF you ever needed it.
If you want it gone, you should be able to open the "My Network Places' icon, open "Microsoft Network" then RIGHT click on the "Workgroup" listing, choose "Delete".
1) Go to Control Panel ->System and Computer Name
2) Note: The name next to Workgroup
3) Go to My Network Places and look at the two icons showing workgroups, one of them is your one.
4) Go back to Control Panel -> System and Computer name
5) Click Change and Change the Workgroup name to the name of the other workgroup
Now you should only show one workgroup under Network Places
Hope this helps.

Two home computers have been networked with a "HOME" network.
Under Microsoft Windows Network I now have a "HOME" network and a new "WORKGROUP" network not needed.
How can I remove the WORKGROUP network?
