I have a couple computers that are no longer part of my network that are still giving me alerts in my network summary, specifically under the "Updates" section - as well as showing up in the "Updates" section of the security tab of Windows SBS Console.  They are not anywhere to be found in Active Directory.  Any idea how I can get rid of them, or why they might still be showing up?

I presume the computers no longer appear on the 'Network' tab of the SBS Console?

If so, do the computers appear in the WSUS management console? (Start > Administrative Tools > Microsoft Windows Update Services). If so, I'd remove them from there; that should clear them out of the Updates section of the SBS Management Console.
