Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected since 1999.

Choose System - shared folders - sessions

Maybe it's an old hacker, not shown in sessions.

What you see in network neighbourhood is history and/or actual "sessions"

If it's history - follow my 7 issues, cleanup your computer, and protect it in the future
