    To permanently disable default administrative shares:

    1. Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Shared Folders / Shares.
    2. Right-click the administrative share you wish to disable and press Stop sharing.
    3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

    Double click on AutoShareServer and set it to 0 to disable it for a server.
    Double click on AutoShareWks and set it to 0 to disable it for a workstation.
    If the entries are not present, Add Value of type REG_DWORD. The Range is 0 (disable) or 1 (enable - the default).
