On my server 2000 box im getting multiple domains..over 20 that are showing up in network neighborhood. The server is only connected to my domain.  I have run virus checks and checked my firewall.  Is there a way to "delete" these domains from view or a setting that has the time limit.  I ve narrowed it down to possible laptops coming in from outside sales reps that are connected to other domains.  Can anyone tell me how to delete these?

This probably comes with this stupid "Computer Browser" service still active in Windows 2000 and up. Its a service for browsing NetBIOS networks....
If you have WINS/DNS working,  there is no need for this "I tell all my neighbours who I know and knew"-stuff.
Just stop and disable the service called "Computer Browser" on all of your machines if your WINS/DNS is working.
