I opened my Windows10 File Explorer and looking in the Network section listed with the computers I see "DESKTOP-OCRL17I". I don't have a computer with that name and when I tried to open it Windows told that it was unable to access. I was given the option to 'diagnose' and did but the only info received was an error code: 0x80070035, network path not found.

 

I don't remember having seen this listed before but sometimes I'm just not that observant. Could any tell  me if this something normal or do I have a problem?

 You should change your router password to make sure this device not login to your router without your permission.

 Thanks for the reply and yes it is time to change my router password. However, I did find and verify that I had a computer with that name. It was an old laptop that I recently upgraded and reinstalled win10 which then gave itself the mystery name. I changed the name.  Thanks again.
