Default Strangest thing I have ever seen

Im playing on my computer then this window pops up

hmm...strange i dont have an xbox 360. Gets weirder.
I go to network and find this

Some of these network names happen to be last names of some people i know around my town wtf is going on!?
This might help better explain this is the service most people use in my town and probably what these people use.

Uh, it looks like a Local Area Network has been set up, and you are sharing your files with your buds around town. Somebody prolly has an Xbox too.

What does it say in your Network Connections panel?

Ok theres the question.

The reason it happens is because it's an unsecure network (if it's your network then you are quite a dumbass for not noticing that 20 someodd people were connected and probably gaming with xbox and everything)

WindowsVista will find aloads of crap connected to the network. If you want to secure it, go to the computer that is connected directly to the router and go to internet explorer then 192.168.2.1 and setup a password and kick those dumbasses off the network.

Go to the connections screen and change your setting to public. It looks like it's set to private which will allow network discovery of your system to others. And the other way around.
Just change the privacy setting to public.
It's wierd the way they worded the set up but it's right. If you connect to a public wifi then you want those security settings it provides. If you stay private then you are fair game...
