    This mac-mini is showing up in Finder in OS X Lion, not on my other machines on SL. Is someone on my network? I restarted the Airports and it was gone for a few min. and came back. How do I locate what it is? Please help!

    No one is one your network. Its caused by your Mac Mini. If it has SMB/Windows file sharing turned on, this will happen from time to time. Once again, no one is on your network.

    I have a Slingbox and ATV on the network, no Windows machine or OS on my Mini. How do I get rid of it?

    Does the Mini have SMB sharing on? That's why you have it. To get rid of it, you must turn off SMB sharing in the Sharing pref pane.

    Its Window file sharing. Go to the Sharing pref pane. Click on File Sharing, then Options. Uncheck SMB, restart your network to fully clear it.

    Yes I do have File Sharing turned on. Thank you for your help on this. I was worried that someone has hacked my 26 key WAP password and joined my network. :p
