    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick one, does anyone know how to stop the default administrative
    file shares in Win XP (professional edition)? One would think this would be
    a standard part of locking down a box, but can't find much on it for XP.

    You can do it through Computer Management but they'll be re-enabled at
    reboot, and the Win2k key of
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters\AutoShareWks
    doesn't seem to exist. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Leon
