    Hey ICIT2LOL,
    From what I understand ... MS still has the Computer Browser tied to SMBv1, so you need it installed. However, you don't have to use it (if you don't need it) and it can be disabled for the Server or Client (or Both) ... PC is both a Server & Client in the SMB context.

    Note: MS has patched SMBv1 (MS17-010: Security update for Windows SMB Server: March 14, 2017)

    Thanks Eagle mate to be honest I don't really understand all that stuff properly anyway as there are so many settings and features etc etc it sort of messes with this brain
