im using SQL Server 2005
The publisher was deleted. The subscriber not because i cannot delete it.
i can see the subscription, but if i try to delete it, i get error message "the subscription does not exist on the server anymore. Please refresh its parent tree node." when i clear the error message, the subscription disappears.

If i refresh the tree, the subscription appear again.

Any ideas?

See if sp_removedbreplication can fix up the subscriber database. It works on the publisher...
