    "Media Server" showing up in Network

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having some trouble dealing with a stubborn device not letting me remove it from my Network. I've attached a screenshot of the problem. It won't let me remove it, and when I attempt to, the Network window will just hang until I force it to close. It's very annoying, although minor.

    The device seems to be my girlfriend's computer, which is fine, but since I can't access the device from my Network window, I'd like to just remove it.

    Thanks for any tips.

    You can usually delete those by going to Network folder on the taskbar then click on Computer, the media device should be showing up there.

    Although in your case it isn't showing up there so try going into the Control Panel then too Devices and Printers, it should show up on that list where you can right click the device to remove it.

A "Hidden Network" started showing up in list of networks.
When I refresh networks, I see all the networks I should (we have an extender, so there are two regions on our house) -- but I also see one called Hidden Network. How do I find out what that is? There are no nearby houses. This has to be emanating from my house.
