    Unwanted network listings (Pro SP2)

    Windows Explorer is typically showing network folders that I have browsed in the past, including some that no longer exist.
    Is there some way to remove these listings? - I could right-click and select Delete - but will that delete the folder if it does exist?
    And why am I being show "My Web Sites on MSN" when I don't have any?

    From this KB article....
    "The My Websites on MSN folder is added to My Network Places (and appears in common dialog boxes) after you use the Web Publishing Wizard or the Add Network Place Wizard to create or add files to your MSN Web site."

    The other folders in your Network Places might be related to Remote Desktop Protocol.

    You can right click and delete. That only removes it from your view. Leaves the original alone.

    Thanks both - right-clicking and deleting seems safe enough!
