Windows Netbios code kinda sucks.  It takes awhile for the browse list to get throughout your network.  I can't remember the exact times, but it could be in excess of 45 minutes before the proper information shows up.

Ok dood, sounds like u deleted the shared folder without first UNSHARING it ! (crappy netbios networking!) the settings are still in the host REGISTRY (do NOT attempt to remove them!). recreate the shared folder on the host, reboot the hand should be there, unshare it, then delete it, F5 will then refresh the net neighborhood from the client machine.

if not the shares will be still there forever. muhaaa

also if u have any mapped drives disconnect them.  the most recent used is also stored in the reg.

TWEAKui 98 would help clean this up
under the paranoid settings....

good luck.

NOTE: THE RECREATED FOLDER NAME MUST BE THE EXACT NAME OF THE OLD FOLDER OR IT WONT WORK.
