Drill into a collection, right-click the system object, you should see 'delete.'  If you do not, it sounds like a security rights issue.  Are you aware that you have Delete permissions for the collection where the system resides?

Hello itbabe!

I believe you are asking how to remove the client object from the SCCM Console.  The first thing to consider is how often the AD System Discovery runs.  If a discovery has not run since you removed the workstation from the domain or uninstalled the client, it can still show up in your collections - which I presume is what your referring to.  That being the case, simply delete the object.  The next time the AD System Discovery runs, it will no longer see the workstation as a client.

Cheers

Right-click the collection, click the Security tab and look for your user account.  If you don't see the mention of 'Delete' listed next to your account under Permissions, this is your problem.
