Why does other computers software devices and computers show on mine?

I will often find "software devices" on my computer for computers and devices that do not belong to me.  They are for computers on my wifi network.  I have free high speed internet and a password to use it.  I do not share or participate on a "home group"

If you are in the same workgroup and share a Wifi you can see the devices 

You may have to change your workgroup. I also suggest to install a decent firewall like Agnitum Outpost Pro
