    BTW What is the advantage of auto SMB1 removal if any ?
    It's a feature aimed at Business networks. SMB1 is removed because (amongst other things) it's old and vulnerable, it was one of the methods WannaCry used to spread through corporate networks. Relatively safe for home use, but not suitable for use in the Enterprise.

    Is there a replacement for SMB1 . Can I turn it off and use another protocol to discover all my network computers ? All my computers are running Win10 . Tks

    IMO None ... As previous mentioned it's deprecated by MS, so if you wish to stop using SMBv1 just uninstall it.

    It's probably another router or maybe a Smart Tv that's in range that you're picking up. A lot of different routers are based on that "Ralink Linux Client" and here's an old Ten Forums post about it Ralink Linux Client showing up in Windows Network - Windows 10 Forums
    BTW Ralink linux client no longer shows as a computer after I changed the PW of the Router . I wonder why .

    The SMB v1.0/CIFS Automatic Removal feature can be removed with a PowerShell one-liner:
    Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName SMB1Protocol-Deprecation -NoRestart
    It requires elevation so remember to choose Windows PowerShell (Admin) from the right-click Power menu or you'll get an error.

    If you have AutoHotkey installed then it's even easier:
    ; Prompt to 'Run as Admin', i.e. show UAC dialog
    If Not A_IsAdmin
       Run *RunAs "%A_ScriptFullPath%"  ; Requires v1.0.92.01+
    psScript =
    Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName SMB1Protocol-Deprecation -NoRestart
    RunWait PowerShell.exe -Command %psScript%,, hide
    MsgBox, SMB1 Automatic Removal, Done! The feature has been removed.
    This AHK script will pop a User Account Control (UAC) prompt to allow elevation, run the PowerShell one-liner then display a message when it's finished.

    Hope this helps...
