Browsing a Domain

We had a Windows 2003 domain, (domain A) and Windows 2000 domain, (Domain B), (seperate forests), which had a trust between them.

The trust has been deleted and the DC's in the 2000 domain, (Domain B), no longer exist, i.e they have been switched off.  

The issue is when you browse the Network neighbourhood it still shows the 2003 domain, (domain A) and the one that dosent exist, (domain B).

How do I make the 2003 domain "refresh" to realise that domain B isnt there anymore.

Try this:  Release and refresh NetBIOS names by using the nbtstat command

interested to see how you got rid of the now removed domain...? did you do this properly and demote your machines using dcpromo or did you simply turn them off?

FE's solution should help you....but if not we may have to take some other steps to remove those records completely

Were any of your PCs in your LAN joined to the domain b?  If a PC on your network still belongs to domain b, it may be broadcasting that information.
