    nashyo is right. The computer that appears in the sidebar of Finder DOES NOT have to be on your local network. He has seen this, I have seen it, dozens of people have seen this. It's all over the web. We need someone who understands the process of a computer adding itself (you do not have to add it) to your sidebar and so far, none of you have a clue.


    Although hiding the item might satisfy nashyo, it wouldn't satisfy me. I would still want to know how the computer added itself, and how to block computers from adding themselves.

    I'm having this issue too. In my case it is my old PC, which I connected to my network to transfer files to my Mac. The PC is now formatted and sold, but it still shows up in Finder. Clearly there is no link to the PC as it is dead and buried, but I would like to be able to remove the shortcut.
