Hi. I set up a network, but then renamed one of the computers and ran the network setup wizard on it again. From all of the computers on the network, it still appears in "view workgroup computers" twice, (both the new name and the old name). I can't access it or anything on the old name. How do I get rid of it because it just looks untidy.

Eventually, the old computer will go away due to Netbios and computer browsing functions. How long does it takes? Anywhere from 2 hours to 36 hours depending on broadcasting and other factors.

It can even take longer depending on the size of the network. Every computer will eventually be aware of the change. Just takes time.
