Assume you have a network environment with couple of servers and over a hundred or maybe even a thousand desktop operating systems. If you search for a computer by its name using “My Network Places”, then you’ll se a list of all computers that are members of your domain or workgroup. If you, for some reason (security?), maybe want to stop the name of a certain computer appearing on the list, then you should check out the Microsoft’s KB article (HERE).
