Follow these steps as needed to later turn off (or on) network discovery.

Network discovery requires the following services to be running on your computer: DNS Client, Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Discovery, and UPnP Device Host. Additionally, Windows Firewall (and any other firewalls on your network) must be configured to allow network discovery. Refer to Windows Help and Support for more details.
