"10 users sharing this computer, if you restart they will be disconnected"

I've been on Lion on a new iMac for 2 days or so, but each time I restart, there's always 5-10 'users sharing this computer', even as this is the only computer on the network. I have screen sharing turned on, requiring password, and files sharing turned on, but only sharing my 'Shared Folder'.

I've attached a grab of the dialogue box showing 10 users connected. I don't want people snooping, but I don't want any overzealous firewalls or security software getting in the way. I use an iPad with home sharing, and an aTV 2 in the living room with aTV flash installed.

Thanks for any help in advance,

Tom

PS: The aTV can browse the full hard drive of this iMac, even though sharing only has the Shared Folder enabled. related?

What is your network password? (that's a rhetorical question)
Have you set a network password? (see Airport Utility, Wireless password)
It sounds like your neighbors are using your wifi, which they can do if you have no network password, or they've found out what your password is.
