    why do strange email addresses appear as network locations?


    I opened my "This PC" folder on my desktop and noticed that under Network Locations, there are two items that are named after email addresses. when I check properties I get an error say that they cant display properties. when I open them, they say that the folders are empty.

    the addresses are:

    see below or attached

    they are not familiar addresses and will not delete when I try to remove them.
    Any suggestions?

    Those are media center servers. Have you placed your computer on a network, such as a public hotspot where you might have picked up media center servers from other users?
