Hi All

 

 I have an IT question which hopefully someome might be able to help me with.

 

i have noticed recently ive got a saved wifi connection in my settings on my windows laptop, iWhen I say this I dont mean in.the options to connect to available networks but like say if you stayed in a hotel and used their wifi and it saves it in your manage wifi known network settings.

 

It says vodafone wifi network but ive never connected to such a network. Plus i dont have vodafone and apparently neither do anyone else in the house. I can click on forget and it disappears whilst i leave laptop on. However when i reboot it regenerates itself. Like I said it is as if I have actually connected to the network and its savded the connection for the future

 

We have virgin in the house for connection. Can anyone shed some light pleasse? I can only go into details or forget?

 

I share a house with others (i dont resally know) . I have 2 neighbours either side of me also. One of hte guys in the house has a Xbox, he said his friend have vodafone, 

 

Can someone please help as I am worried that I have an infection or someone is making unauthorised connections to my laptop

 

All of the connections available in the list are just a series of numbers - so Im not sure which connection it is in reference to

 

Thanks

 

A
