Windows 7: Network discovery still shows non existant computers

Network discovery still shows non existant computers

Hi all
How can I get rid of Network discovery discovering "Non existant" computers - even AFTER a reboot

The computer BIGLAPTOP no longer exists on my network anymore (not even as a logged off or powered off Virtual Machine).

How do I remove it from Network discovery. In any case I shouldn't have to --surely Network Discovery should only be able to find computers STILL attached to the network - so if this mythical machine is still on the network WHERE IS IT.

Sometimes there's a problem of NOT FINDING connected machines but FINDING NON connected machines -- now thats strange.

(I'm running newly installed - clean) build 7100 x-64).

Cheers
jimbo

I have the same problem with the release version of windows 7. The actual problem is I renamed my own machine, and my old machine name still shows up in network discovery, even if I restart the service it is still there. I may have to go digging around in the registry.

The also is a related problem that my machine cannot sleep (suspend S3) automatically as there is always a file sharing connection open to itself.

C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -requests
DISPLAY:
None.

SYSTEM:
[DRIVER] \FileSystem\srvnet
An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine.

AWAYMODE:
None.
