    Here are some instructions to disable NetBIOS --

    1. Start > Control Panel ( Category View ) > 'Network and Internet Connections' > 'Network Connections'.
    2. Under 'LAN or High Speed Internet' of the 'Network Connections Window' -- click once and highlight an item associated with your network card. Right click on that item and select 'Properties'.
    3. Under 'Local Area Connection Properties' -- uncheck 'Client for Microft Networks' and 'File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks'. If you intend to use either of these with NetBEUI or IPX, then leave them checked.
    4. Under the 'General' tab of the 'Local Area Connection Properties' window -- click one on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    5. Under the 'General' tab of the 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Settings' window -- click on 'Advanced'. In the 'Advanced TCP/IP Settings' window -- click on 'WINS'.
    6. Select Disable 'NetBIOS over TCP/IP'.
    7. Remove the check next to 'Enable LMHOSTS lookup'.
    8. Click OK on the Advanced TCP/IP setting window > click OK in the 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Settings' window.
    9. Click Close on the Local Area Connection Properties window > click Close the 'Network Connections' window using the 'X' button in the upper right corner or File > Close.
    10. Finally, reboot your system and check.

    For the Windows users with Classic View for Control Panel, you just need to double-click on 'Network Connections' and follow the remaining solution (from step 2) provided by Shen.
