Problem with user computer name on Windows 7 pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • An employee left the company and I had to redo the computer for a new employee. So I made new account on the existing computer and set everything up. Then I deleted the old account. Everything works fine except when I do a ping -a ipaddress it comes up with the old users computer name instead of the new employee's computer name. I did double check the computer name and it has the new employee's name there. I flushed the DNS, etc...
    Please advise.

  • Hi,

    This is a WINS issue

    To resolve please try the following

    1. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator (right click cmd and run-as administrator)

    2. type   nbstat -RR

    3. type   ipconfig /flushdns

    4. Reboot the host and test again

    Kind Regards,


    If you find my information useful, please rate it. :-)
