Workaround To Stop Multiple Genie Media Servers On Win 8.1

First off many thanks to Xircal in Microsoft Community Forums.

 

After submitting this issue to Microsoft I was fortunate enough to receive help from Xircal who helped me find a workaround to stop the Genie Media Servers from duplicating in Win 8.1 Devices and Printers section.  Here's all you need to do:

 

1. Open the Network and Sharing Center

2. Click on Change Advanced Sharing Settings

3. Turn off Network Discovery

 

I don't know what impact turning off Network Discovery has on my computers but I don't care. I just wanted to be able to keep using Genie, it's a convenient tool for me.
