    I have just formatted my dad's computer and I almost finished installing windows 7 when I see the window,shown on the link to an image I have provided.
    I have whitened my friends home group name and account.But why do I see his home group on my dad's computer when the there hasn't been any interaction between the two?The image is in Bulgarian,but I will try to literally translate it :

    Installing of windows
    Sharing with other desktop computers with windows 7.
    Windows discovered a home group in your network.When you join to a home group,you can share files and printers with other computers with windows 7.To continue,take the password for the home group from (whitened area) of (whitened area)-PC from other member of the home group.
    Choose the following,which you want to share :
    (checked)Pictures (checked)Music
    (checked)Video recordings(checked)Printers
    (unchecked)documents
    More info about home groups
    Type your password for the home group :
    (area to type password)
    To receive the password,ask(whitened area) in (whitened area)-PC or other member of the home group to open the home group in the control panel on his computer.
    Skip Next

    How did that happened ?
    Is there any risk that someone can have direct access to my dads computer ?
    What should I do ?

    Try turning off remote assistance and remote desktop. Are you sure you used correct W7 ISO w/o any mods? Try running a scan using Kaspersky Rescue Disk by burning the ISO to a usb drive or you can use HBCD or F4 UBCD to run MBAM to detect rootkits or malware.

    So you see the friend's homegroup but aren't connected to their network? Are you 100% sure about that?
