I am not connected to a network, only the internet using a speedtouch router. Is it necessary to uncheck, "Client for Microsoft Network" and "File and printer sharing for Microsoft Network"?

If the connection is *only* used for internet access then, for additional security, you *should* uncheck "File & Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".
