    So today, and times before, I find random PCs connected to my mac.

    In the finder, I see under "Shared"

    toshiba-user
    and this other one your-973fac and a bunch of numbers.

    I changed the password on my network before to something very hard... but its still connected. WTF is happening?!?!?!

    When i click "Connect As..."

    I get.

    Connection failed.

    Finder > Preferences > Uncheck these: "Back to my Mac", "Connected Servers", "Bonjour Computers"

    They're not connected. You simply see them as available to connect.
