Why and how to disable SMB1 on Windows 10/8/7

SMB or Server Message Block is a network file sharing protocol meant for sharing files, printers, etc, between computers. There are three versions – Server Message Block (SMB) version 1 (SMBv1), SMB version 2 (SMBv2), and SMB version 3 (SMBv3). Microsoft recommends that you disable SMB1 for security reason – and it is not more important to do so in view of the WannaCrypt or NotPetya ransomware epidemic.
