These are virtual interfaces usually created when you use a VPN, Internet Connection Sharing (ICS), and/or IPv6.

I did not install any sort of network with any other computer.  Could somebody be spying on me?

I doubt it.  Are you running Windows Vista or XP?  The reason I ask is that Vista already uses IPv6 by default.  Thus, you would have these tunnel adapters without having to install anything yourself.
