Account aging

I know that the average age of accounts is a significant factor in determing your score.  At what age of account do you move from new credit to established?  Current average age of accounts is 4 years, but I believe I have some old, closed accounts which are reported as open and could be removed at any time lowering my average age to 2 years.  Any help would be appreciated.

MODS: Please move to proper forum.
 
Why do you want the old accounts removed? Are they derogs?

Re: Account aging

The accounts in question were 60 days late at one point.
