duplicate network icon???
i just upgraded to hp pavillion on my home network. When i clik on Network
icon i see TWO icons and one valid for the old desktop machine. One says
HP-Laptop and the other says HP-Laptop-OC-. Both contain the same directories
and files. Why is this? I find this confusing and would like to delete the
*-OC one but can't find the way to do this. Or is this normal for Vista SP1
thank you for your help

The -OC version is One Care's addition for printer sharing purposes.
Either ignore it or remove the printer sharing in One Care and share the
printer in the normal way.
