Re: can't disable netbios on XP or Vista
Disabling NetBIOS doesn't restrict access to the machines, NetBIOS is
just a name resolution mechanism, it allows you to communicate to other
computers by name. If you want to restrict access to your machine
disable the Server service (this will also disable printer sharing).
