2000 network neighborhood: old pc name shows up even though the name has been changed.

I have a peer to peer network running Windows 2000 on both machines. I changed the name on pc1 to something else. But now when I browse to network neighborhood the old pc name still shows up. How can I remove this? It confuses my users because they see 3 computers in network neighborhood when only 2 are really there. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

How long has it been since you renamed the computer?  Have you rebooted the machine?  If yes, at a command prompt type:

NET STOP BROWSER

Hit enter and type:

NET START BROWSER

Let me know if this solves the problem.
