Phantom Networks Appearing

Hey Gang,

I have noticed a bunch of new Network computers on my home network. I have a wireless network and wired; they came out of nowhere. I concerned they are outsider trying to access my wireless network (via a Verizon FIOS router). See attached Explorer screen shot. What is going on?

thanks,

B

I should add that I have tried navigating to them via Control Panel and Networks, but can't find any way to delete or disable them.

Thanks

Phantom Floppy
I don't have a floppy drive connected to the ASUS P5Q motherboard, yet, both Win7 and my old XP insist on listing it in both Windows Explorer, and device manager. Disabling and/or removing it only results in New Hardware found on the next boot. Any ideas?
