You want to remove a trust. This is commonly done when the remote domain has been decommissioned or access to it is no longer required.

Trusts are stored in Active Directory as two objects; a trustedDomain object in the System container and a user object in the Users container. Both of these objects need to be removed when deleting a trust. The GUI and CLI solutions take care of that in one step, but in the VBScript example both objects needed to be explicitly deleted. It is also worth noting that each solution only deleted one side of the trust. If the trust was to a remote AD forest or NT 4.0 domain, you also need to delete the trust in that domain.
