I have a mapped drive as shown in the attached image. This folder used to reside on a the device described, "Iomega StorCenter Device", which was host \\OHPRSstorage. The Iomega has long since died and has been replaced by something entirely different, yet the title at the top of the My Computer dialog still shows "Iomega ...".

How do I get rid of this?

try this.

unmap your drive. then use REGEDIT to navigate to the following key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComputerDescriptions]

then delete the offending String and remap your drive
