Just to lower the bar on this flame war: consider that some servers block ICMP. Carry on.

comment Ping [computer] get strange IP address
Dunno. Sounds like some kind of DNS caching. If so, ipconfig/flushdns would help.

You using OpenDNS? Looks like it resolves to one of their servers and they are in San Francisco. What do you get for ping blah and ping whatever?

comment What is a MAC address, and what does it reveal about me?
@harry, I don't think packets carry MAC over http/ftp so the DSL/cable modem is the last thing to "see" it.

@Starx, I was going to suggest checking Windows Task Explorer CTRL-SHIFT-ESC and msconfig.exe but ultrasawblae's suggestions sound like the beefed up versions. Windows Task Explorer has an option to show which programs are using up the most cumulative processor time, which is one thing that will make your computer slow.

comment What is the purpose of a Windows Workgroup?
Sam, is this what you're asking? standalone: 4 computers on 4 different workgroups, workgroup: 4 computers on same workgroup, "What does the workgroup give you that is impossible to do on a standalone network?"
