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.

When I select a system in collections I don't see a delete option . Where can I do this ?

Thanks,  how can such an object be deleted ?
When I went to the collection Windows xp systems and I selected the system in question I did not see a delete button or something similar
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?
