After decommissioning 3 NT4 domains, I still see the domains listed under Network Neighborhood.  How do I get rid of these?  Is there something else I need to do besides deleting the entries from DNS and WINS?
Thanks.

Yes. Be patient and wait.
The browserlist should clear the old entries, but that can take some time.
