Hello. I just got Windows 7 and already stomped into issues. I can see other PC's in the network. That's wouldn't be so bad if I didn't know they can see me too. I'm not sociopath or something but I prefer privacy. Now I think it's my ISP's fault. I'm connected to a LAN (local?) at all times and in order to access the internet I use a broadband ID and password connection. In XP no PC is visible which is more comfortable but maybe they're there and only actively detectable. However, in 7 they're passively which I want to avoid. I tried changing the workgroup name but it didn't work. Oh, forgot to mention - a proof I'm not anti-social is that I actually wrote a txt file on the other PC in LAN in a folder and typed in some conversation (as in monologue). So is there a way not to be accessible (be invisible) by the other PC's?
