"Connect Automatically" to Wireless Connections

    When I view the available Wireless Network Connections in Windows 7, all the
    wireless networks have a check mark in "Connect automatically." I'm not sure
    if this is the Windows 7 default or if it was pre-configured this way by my
    OEM.

    In any case, shouldn't these check marks be removed from all other wireless
    networks besides my own? Some of the wireless networks in my neighborhood
    have no security at all, and I wouldn't want any of my PCs to be part of
    that.

    If I may ask a second question: The last network in the list of Available
    Wireless Networks is simply called "Other Network". Does that mean something
    special?

    Thanks for your help.
