The way I usually remove a computer from AD is by removing the computer from the domain to a workgroup from that workstation. After reboot, the object in AD shows the blue arrow which I then just delete. I have never had an issue with this in the past. However recently when I go to delete the object I am prompted about deleting containers and other objects. I have attached a screenshot but not sure what to answer.
