Windows 7: Unknown PCs are seen on my share list

Unknown PCs are seen on my share list

Somehow when I go to Windows Media Player on the left hand side there is Other Libraries section. I see several PCs that I share with them but I don't know who the hell they are and I never accepted to share with them. How can I get rid of them please?

This is the part what I am talking about. Even if I go to Network & Sharing center there is even more of these. So what's the cause?

If you right click on them, can you delete or disconnect?

Please detail your home network configuration. Do you have wireless? Is it yours or is it someone else's? If it's yours, is it secured?

If I am understanding you corectly, those computers do not show up in the network and sharing center. there is a very high posability that if you are runninh wirelles that it may not be secured. Basicly other people ar connecting to your wifi acess point.

I am using it at home. No one else uses this line. I am just curios if it is the company's fault?
