Shared folder with unauthorized user

Specs: iMAC OS X LION 10.7.5
When I click on my Mac HD icon it lists "Favorites", "Devices" and now today it has added the heading "Shared." It shows a PC icon and "hp68b5997…" When I open that, is shows that this computer is "Connected as Guest" and shows a Memory Card folder. When I click on that it says the operation can't be completed because it can't be found.

It freaked me out so I started checking a few things and went to my WiFi connection. The network had been changed from my secure connection to a different one that is not secure. I switched it back, but I don't understand how this happened.

What is going on? Am I being hacked? How do I stop this, and prevent it from ever happening again?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated --- this is really scary!

Thanks!

make sure the wireless on your router is encrypted with a WPA key.
