Windows – remove an open WiFi of a service provider near the house

windows 7

I'm using Windows 7. There is an access point of a service provider WiFi near my house. The WiFi is not free and not WEB/WPA protected. Everyone can connect to it and it will show the company's login page. (if the username/password are put correctly, their customer can use the net.)

I'm not the customer of the company and have my own access point in my house. But my computer always connect to the network of that company. I tried to remove the network but it keep coming back and connect to that access point instead of mine.

What can I do to make my computer choose my access point first?

In Manage Wireless Networks, select the network you don't want to connect to, and click "Move Down" until it is at the bottom of your priority list. Then, right click it, select Properties, and uncheck "Connect automatically when this network is in range."
