Does this need to be enabled for a stand alone pc not sharing network printers etc? I have sp2 (no other firewall) & was shocked click here with the disclosed info. After disabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP found to be more secure.

No it doesn't. Should be disabled expect on some network systems or very old stand alone P/Cs were it is sometimes needed.
