I have a mysterious and somewhat suspicious occurrence on my OSX Snow Leopard. Every now & then I get a shared network entry appear in the finder, and then disappear after say 5 minutes. The name is same as my machine's name uncapitalised. It shows as a PC server/beige box icon. If I try to connect it says:
The server "NAME" is available on your computer. Access the volumes and files locally.
I've changed my computer name under sys prefs > sharing and this duplicate device keeps the old name. Created a new login user and the same thing happens on that account. Looked on my router for connected devices but can't see anything.
I have Parallels installed but it's not open. Any ideas what could be causing this?
