We are having issues on our SQL Server 2008 server where more publications are showing up on our Replication monitor than what actually exist.  Some of these are old jobs and some of them appear to be duplicates.  Below is a screenshot of the Replication Monitor showing publications beside those shown in the Management Studio's Replication folder.

Seems like old replications wasn't remove properly.
You can try to delete them. Check also for old SQL Agent jobs and if you find them, also delete it.

How can I delete them Vitor?  I can't do it via Replication Monitor and they aren't showing in the Publications folder of Management Studio.

You need to review the process you are using for deleting publications. Isn't a clear process for sure.

Turns out the related DBs were restoring which I guess explains why they weren't appearing.  Once the restores were complete I was able to log in and delete as you suggested.
