if you gave a little more information about what you are trying to do and what OS you are trying to do it in.
If you are trying to remove something from the GO/Network window called Servers, you can't. If it is what you are trying to do, take a look at the icon and you will see the Alias symbol on it. It is pointing to your machine.
If it is something in one of the other folders, workgroup for instance, as long as the machine is connected to the network, it will be there.

Now, what was it you were attempting?

does not seem to be the term used when having a problem on one machine, your adjust another.
The only time the I have seen the "WorkGroup" folder is when there is a PC on the network. Otherwise, on a Mac only network, the other stations appear in the network window. With a mixed network, the PC appears under Go/Network/Workgroup (with the Macs) and the Macs under Go/Network/My Network. (with the PC)...Go figure
To paraphrase a well known leader, you seem to have snatched failure from the jaws of success!
Is the PC on another network or belong to another group?
