    If the “Net Scan” default for XP is enabled, one finds Network Neighborhood populated with auto-found printers.
    Older mapped drives also seem reluctant to clean themselves.

    I can remove through Windows Explorer, ‘Network Neighborhood’, or ‘Net Hood’ entries, but is there a clean script to remove this aging entries, or accelerate their aging so that they no longer appear?

    Using the registry requires moving the entries you want to preserve so as to preserve they key order links.

    I just want a short, sweet cleaner.

    Any help appreciated.
