TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
In Windows 7 there are many system run services that we often don’t require for our work. So Disabling or not running this service unnecessarily we can save the boot time as well as the speedup Windows 7. Here is that one service among Windows 7 system services that can be safely set to Manual or Disabled.
This service provides support for the NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) service and NetBIOS name resolution for clients on the network, therefore enabling users to share files, print, and log on to the network. If this service is stopped, these functions might be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
