Strange "Networks" in the "Network" category in My Computer - how do I get rid of them?

So I was messing around on my computers, trying to get a homegroup working.

That's beside the point. Let's cut to the chase.

When I opened My Computer, I noticed something strange listed under "Network." On my laptop, there were 2 "networks": HAROLDIII-LAPTO (my laptop) and HAROLDIII-PC (my desktop). Also a "media device" with the name "HAROLDIII-PC."

On my desktop, just one is visible: the media device HAROLDIII-PC.

WTF is this and how can I get rid of them?
