On my network at work, my laptop shows up as a Media Device with my pc username next to it. How do I hide this from them?

I'll assume you're using Windows 7. Go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Advanced sharing settings and you can turn off network discovery all together or just turn off Media streaming.

Turning off Media Streaming will still show the computer as a media device. – LarryBud Jan 18 at 17:48
