Add this regkey to exclude certain workstations from showing up on the RWW.

hklm\software\microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\Remote UserPortal\ExcludeList

The regkey is a string and it consists of a comma delimited list of
computers you want excluded.

Example:
joecomp1,janecomp1,jackcomp1

will the solution remove it JUST from the list or actually from the domain? (i.e. asking due to licensing issues)

Look if the computer doesnt exist then just disable the account and then delete it from everywhere. Yes, from domain.

Yes, I am talking about computer account too. You would do it the same way you would with a user account.

In AD, you would just find it and right click on it, hit disable, apply! And then just delete!
