Windows 7: how to detect wireless LAN piggybacking

how to detect wireless LAN piggybacking

If one has only one desktop PC for home use and uses say cable/DSL, is there a network monitoring program that is easy to use and display wireless LAN piggybacking, virtual network, & anonymous/remote servers including its IP addresses and location and description of what it was doing?
Can this program also be able to disable, block, disconnect wireless LAN piggybacking, virtual network & anonymous/remote servers?

One more thing, how can a user be able to isolate the home desktop PC using Win 7?
In other words, the user does not want the PC to be a domain nor workstation, but wants to connect only to the Internet - to surf, e-mail, shop, upload/download. No sharing with anyone.
