I ran into this. There were no files in that PeerNetworking folder to delete. After some further Googling, I found this:

http://www.ebugg-i.com/forums/windows/HomeGroup-error-0x80630203-Leavingjoining-the-homegroup-is-not-possible.html

This is the main part:

Go to "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\" and then rename "MachineKeys" folder to "MachineKeys-old".
Create a new folder "MachineKeys" and right click the "MachineKeys" folder , select "Properties" and click "Security" tab. then set "Full Control" permissions to "Everyone".

After I redid that folder, I was able to start up the necessary services.
