I suggest you set it up from scratch:

LEAVE (on all computers)
Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Homegroup > Leave the Homegroup and click Leave the Homegroup. If all the computers leave the Homegroup, it will no longer exist, so it‘s effectively deleted and can be setup again.

CREATE (on one computer)
Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Homegroup > Create a homegroup > Select the folders you want > Next and make a note of the password that will be used by other computers to join the Homegroup.

JOIN (on remaining computers)
Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Homegroup > Join now and type in the password.
