Oops... That's a big problem then. I actually don't use photobucket for myself. I have already done a lot of argument with the how-to geek team on this photobucket and image uploading stuff. Sorry, i cant use photobucket...:(

For your knowledge i'm talking about the connections which are shown when i click on "connect to" in start menu in windows 7. I want to delete some unused connections.

Try: Network and Sharing Center > Customize > Merge or delete network locations

Is this what you were looking for? I'm using Vista. Hope W7 is same or similar.

Try "open network and sharing center' -> go to "network"-> if the connections shown above are listed there, right click on each and select delete.

Good luck.

@bartman, i can't see customize option here. I guess its different in windows 7...
@wevenhuis, there are no such connections listed in network and sharing center. Any suggestions??

Ok. How about this:

Merge & Delete network locations

In Windows 7, this can found in the "Network and Sharing Center". Simply click on the picture of a house (or other icon that may be there) under the words "View your active networks", then click "Merge or delete network locations".
