Turn off sharing on 'C' drive

by gswarts / March 29, 2004 11:16 PM PST

When I right click the 'C' drive and turn off sharing, it doesn't stay turned off. Is there a way to get it turned off permanently. My virus program suggested me turning off sharing on 'C' drive and to put a password with Administrator. I was getting reports every day with them detecting virus worms. The password worked as I don't get them anymore. Maybe the sharing is turned off too but under Preferences it shows sharing the next time I log on.
Thanks for your help.

Be sure you are administrator and be sure you hit apply, not just OK.

And make sure you turn off for all users.

Thank you for your help. I did a right click on the 'C' drive and went into sharing and turned off the share also on preferences. Made sure it was for all users and did the apply. I think it worked.
thanks you again.
