    I recently changed the computer name of one of the PCs on my home network. the original PC name is still showing up under the Network in My Computer in Windows 7. I have rebooted both PCs, but the phantom computer name still remains. Does anyone have a solution to this. The changed name PC is running Windows XP and the computer I am connecting thru is running Windows 7.

    Is the NEW name also appearing?

    Yes, the new name appeared along with the old name. However since the PCs rolled over to a new day, the problem has corrected itself. The phantom PC stopped showing up around midnight.

    It just takes time for somethings to wake up and get on with it.
