  • The class "Windows Domain Controller" is unhosted and its discovery is targeted at "Microsoft.Windows.Computer".

    Which means two things :

    -It can't be be undiscovered when its hosting class is undiscovered, simply because there is no hosting class 

    - It can't be undiscovered if the discovery can't run. And I assume the corresponding instances of Microsoft.Windows.Computer don't exist anymore (you say you uninstalled them), so the discovery can't run anymore.

    You can't even disable the discovery since once again, the target (instances of class Windows Computer) doesn't exist anymore.

    So I agree with Leon, you should use the procedure described by Kevin Holman.
