Thanks for the replies. I have turned 'File and Print Sharing off' but the
same PC's still appear in the Add Printer Wizard.

Suppose it's possible that "they" are remembered? On the browsing PC, if
you go to Folder Options in Control Panel and under "View", uncheck
"Automatically search......." do they go away?

Tried unchecking "Automatically search......." but PC's still appear.

When trying to add a printer from any XP PC on the network the same Win95/98
PC's still appear, however when trying to add a printer from any other
Win95/98 PC they don't appear. Very strange.

Out of ideas at the moment, maybe some one else has an idea of how it's
seeing them.
