Tell your neighbour (assuming you know who it is, or can work it out) that their network is unsecure and that they could be paying for someone else to surf the internet... Doing illegal stuff and they would be held responsible! Hopefully they will secure the network then.

I have a WEP secured wireless network set up and 90% of the time it works wonderfully. The other 10% of the time it will switch by itself to a neighbor's unsecured wireless network. How can I keep my pc from "stealing" their signal?
Tell it not to connect to that router.
If you open the Wireless box, there's an option on the left, "change order of preferred networks". In there, delete your neighbour's SSID.
This happens because Windows has tried to connect to this network before and therefore assumes you always want to connect to it.
