  • If this is the only PC in your Circle and it is shown 3 times, change the settings in OneCare for the PC to stop being a hub computer.
    If there are other PCs in your Circle, make one of the other PCs a Hub temporarily and see if you can remove the "ghost" entries from there.
    Note that removing the ghost entries is optional and only an issue if your encounter an error when installing on another PC and encounter an error that you've installed on the maximum number of PCs already.
    If you are unable to remove the ghost entries, you can contact support for help.
