i recently (within past few days) noticed that in my finder window...a new item appears under the shared section. Its got the icon of a PC, and it has the name: 209-99-13-121, and if i "get info" it says its a PC server.

I have no idea what this is, and no matter where i go its always there. my home network, my work network, when traveling, etc.
if i select it...it tries to connect, and then says error connecting.

any way i can find out more info on this, or where its coming from and why its on my shared list?

also...how do i prevent my computer from showing up on others computers like this, but still allow me to share my files/etc.?
