I think I am supposed to disable netbios over TCP/IP. This does get rid of the error messages. It seems that if DHCP is enabled the netbios should be disabled but I might be wrong!

Looking at my settings I followed these steps in Windows 7:

1.Click Start, and then click Network. (click Start, type ncpa.cpl into the search box for Windows 7 or Vista, hit ENTER).
2.Click on the Network and Sharing Center
3.Click Manage Network Connections.
4.Right click on the Local Area Connection select Properties.
5.Select Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
6.Click the Advanced button under the General tab.
7.Click the WINS tab.
Netbios setting was default and in IP settings DHCP is enabled.

Thanks for you help gengiscant. I think you are right. I have set it to default and errors seem to be staying away.
