    1. I don't remember off the top of my head and I'm not on a Vista machine to check.

    I'll check on that when I get home from work tonight. One of these days I'm going to install Vista as a Virtual machine here at work, I just haven't had the time. That'll make it easier to answer questions like this while I'm at work.

    Network Discovery can be turned off in the Network and Sharing Center. Just go to the control panel and find the Network and Sharing Center Icon, click on it and on the bottom you will have options on network discovery, file sharing, media sharing, etc.
