    I have a serious problem: I think that a hacker has broken into my network, and I am troubled. Since I created this peer-to-peer network, 3 years ago, I have only had 3 PCs on it running the following OPSYSs.

    1. pc1 = Hhr (Win98 R2)
    2. pc2 = Main ( WinXP Pro ServPak2)
    3. pc3 = Dell (Win 98 R2)

    I suddenly find (it may have been there for awhile) a fourth foreign PC called: “Rongee-pc”
    I am certain that it has been put there by a hacker.
    I never had a fourth PC on the network, let alone one named “Rongee-pc”!
    It is inaccessible to me, whereasthe others are completely accessible.

    I have been using the free AVG anti-virus.
    I have Windows Firewall “On” with a list of exceptions (none are Rongee-pc!)
    I have a Linksys Broadband Router Hub, and a Cable Modem for Internet connection

    I am dreadfully afraid of what this hacker PC might do.
    Do you have any ideas?
