these are NetBIOS requests, netbios is very old and has been replaced
by dns and therefore can be disabled.
In order to disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP you should right-click on My
Network Places and select Properties. Then right-click on the Local
Area Connection icon, and select Properties. scroll down and click on
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Properties. Now click Advanced, and
select the WINS tab. There you can disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
The only time that netbIOS needs to be left enabled is when there are
computers on your network running older microsoft operating systems
(anything before 2000, eg win 98, 95)
