Question

I renamed my computer and rebooted the system. The old computer name still shows up on my network (with invalid path) and I can't get rid of the entry (shows up in explorer).

Any of you network experts know how to delete it?

As always, your help will be much appreciated.

Never mind. Forgot that I needed to shut down all of the systems on my home network and then reboot all of them.

Did so and that cleared up the "dangling system name".
