1. Any kind of remote desktop software running?
2. Any virtual machine software running like vmware, parallells or virtual box? Sometimes those may create a share.
3. Have you rebooted your machine? The IP address that you gave does not ping.
4. Running "who" from the command prompt will let you see who is logged into your machine. In other words, open up a command prompt and type "who" without the quotes. Any user other than your user name is a poacher.
5. Reboot your router. Is your router default password changed. Not the WIFI password but the admin password.
6. Running netstat -a from the command prompt will give you a list of all ports on your computer that is accessible as well as what IP address is connected to it. In other words, open up a command prompt and type "netstat -a" without the quotes and you'll see a long list. It may take a minute to run. Wait until the command prompt returns.
7. From the command prompt type "whois 24.16.99.251" without the quotes. It will give you the ISP of the IP address with contact info. If this is not your ISP, perhaps check with them.

Hope this helps a little bit.
