Windows 7: Unknown computer showing up on network, YOUR-4DACD0EA75. What is it?

Unknown computer showing up on network, YOUR-4DACD0EA75. What is it?

I am not 100% certain when it started popping up, but one day browsing through my computer, I noticed under networks, my computer would recognize 3 items: my computer, my computer as a media device, and a second computer named:YOUR-4DACD0EA75. What is this? I am not experiencing anything unusual since making the discovery, with the exception of some very inconsistent shutdowns, which i have not been able to replicate. I am mostly afraid I have some malware, adware, something that doesn't belong.

What is strange though, is that after a clean reinstall, the moment my computer is back on the network, it shows up, without even having the chance to visit any sites online. Any guidance would be especially appreciated!

Is this the same thread you already posted?

Yes, it is the same thread, I thought perhaps the original location was not appropriate for the topic. I have googled it, and every reference that comes up, does not touch on this topic in any way, shape, or form. The chance I'm not seeing correctly is also possible, but nothing talks about this unknown computer showing up, and if it is indeed normal, or if I should take action against it.

There are a number of links which point at a gaming server, there's a fair bit of chatter about AVG and malware, as well as emphasis on HP/Compaq machines. Clearly it's generated by some process, connection, or service that your PC is utilising - although whether it's legitimate, or caused by malware, was not immediately clear.

Do you have this folder on your PC...

Such folder does not exist on my computer. Whether it makes a difference or not, my pc was not pre-manufactured (not HP, COMPAQ).

It may be part of Google-Talk. I've seen this in a few HijackThis logs. Check to see if Google-Talk shows up in your installed programs list.

HKCU\..\Run: [googletalk] C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator.YOUR-4DACD0EA75\Application Data\Google Talk\googletalk.exe /autostart
