    Second word: anti-virus Internet worm blocking feature. Turns off
    'NetBIOS name resolution" protocol. To test, try to access another PC
    with it's IP address (\\192.168.0.1) instead if name (\\PC2)

    I am able to "ping" into the laptop and from the laptop I can ping other
    systems in my network. Where can I turn on the netbios name resolution
    protocol?
