      When you right click the 'monitor' icon you should get several options, one should be View available networks. There are other ways of getting to it, in Vista it is Start>Control Panel>Network and Sharing Centre>Click 'Manage network connections' in the left pane. Right click the icon for your Wireless adapter and select Properties. Click the Wireless tab and at the top there is a box with 'Use Windows to configure..etc.' If the box is ticked you are using the the Windows Manager. If it is not ticked, I would advise ticking it. Now in the pane below all the networks your card is picking up are shown. Select the ones that are not your own and click Remove. Your card should not now try to connect to these.

      McAfee could also be causing problems, if you get nowhere with what has been suggested so far, try uninstalling it and see how things go. As long as you keep to safe sites you should be OK for a short while.
