    My Network Places (XP Pro SP1)

    When I view My Net Work Places it continues to display Work Group Connections which are no longer valid. i.e. it shows me computers which are no longer connected. How do I refresh this view to dispaly only the computers that are currently connected?

    Yes, but then the computers which are currect connected to the workgroup do not reappear even after rebooting. What I am interest in is the equivilent to a refresh.

    You should be able to delete the individual systems that you wish without affecting the others you wish to keep.

    Yes I can, but when that computer comes back on line, my Network Places doesn't show it.

    In Windows Explorer you can make sure that under Tools | Folder Options | View "Automatically search for network folders and files" is selected. Be aware that when this option is selected that you can dramatically increase the amount of time it takes for Windows Explorer to load and be ready for use. I don't believe there is any other option to automatically refresh the My Network Places.
