Windows 7: Media Devices showing within the Network

Media Devices showing within the Network

Hi all,

I really hope someone can help me. I want to remove all media devices from my network so I have done the following -

1. Blocked all the media devices that were listed within the media streaming options so it shows that media streaming is off
2. Stopped and disabled the Windows Media Player Network sharing service
3. Disabled access to the program windows media player

Yet still there are a number of media devices displaying when I view my network (see attached)

Thanks a lot
