I'd run a full anti virus scan, check your firewall and netwrk to see where that Pc is. It could be a hacker that has broken in and is looking for the opportunity to do something.

If you take your web connection down for a minute, see if it goes away.

Definitely not a hacker, since I recognize the name was incorrectly setup maybe a year ago and then renamed to the current name.

Ok, then if it's a legitamate node in the network, update it and your report should reflect it.

Again, the computer name exists under the new name in SBS Console but the update sections continues to show updates required for the old name.

I'm not familiar with that report, but if you can save it in HTML or other editable file, you should be able to open that file with a text editor and delete that line.
