Because most are behind a router all shares don't get to the internet. Here's a link about turning of Admin shares which this is most likely what's going on.
Choices to stop it are there from a registry change to stopping the server service.
I am using windows 7 with firewall, zonealamar and avast antivirus. This is on my private home network.
When browsing on my PC I noticed that my whole users folder was available at the network folder. My users folder was being shared and the network discovery option was on with the file sharing one. I thought I disabled all of them !
Either way, I turned off discovery, the file sharing option, then deleted the public user in the advanced sharing options of the user folders and as a result my user/name folder went to unshared.
Could someone have hacked me and changed those options ?
Do I need to do anything else to be entirely safe ?
Is it ok to enterily stop sharing my user folder ?
Thank you very much for any kind of help !
