In Windows XP & I beleave win2k also, Microsoft added the possibility to run Server Message Block (SMB) directly over TCP/IP, without the extra layer of NetBT and for that they use a TCP port# 445. I've only had problems with some P2P software and problems with chating to a couple of buddies of mine with vid/microphones over the WWW but other than that there really wasn't very many problems or anything like that.
Learnin, Have you taken a look at plug & play yet on comps like XP?

Thanks for the reply: I've never messed around within regedit. If I follow the instructions and dislike the results can I reedit and repair what I did?
Nope, I never looked at the security concerns via Plug and Play? I have heard the term plug and prey, though. Ideas? Links? Thanks again. Learnin...

Why do you feel the need to use regedit then fool around with the registry of these things when most of this stuff (such as netbois & plug and play) you can just disable like this: http://www.petri.co.il/disable_netbios_in_w2kxp.htm
