All you need to do is find the file that is being shared and ‘right-click’ it. There should be a check box that says “Shared” uncheck this and that should fix your problem.
Also make sure you have an encrypted key on your wireless. I can use my wi-fi scanner in my apt and find 6 unsecured connections… and many of them have shared folders with personal information or photos I’m sure they don’t want leaked.
Hope this helps and feel free to e-mail me if you need further assistance.
