Administrative shares in Windows ME

527 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  SavvyLady
I was wondering if there was a registry hack or a setting to remove the automated administrative shares under Windows ME. Apparently when you create a shared folder, ME automatically creates Admin shares for each drive letter. I can't seem to find a way to disable it in Windows ME, so maybe there is a util or registry hack available.. Thanks in advance!

In HELP... I typed in multiple user & follwed thru til I found this under another few "related topics"

To change desktop settings for multiple users

Open Users properties.
Click the name of the user you want to change settings for, and then click Change Settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.

That doesn't seem to be what I am looking for. I want to DISABLE the administrative shares on all my drive letters. When you right click on the drive it doesn't say that it is shared, so most likely it is some type of registry setting. It shares the drive letters as "C$" "D$" "E$", etc.. but i cannot remove them.
Go to start/settings/control panel/users
it will bring a panel up & you click the name you want to delete & then click remove.

ps you may have to be in each drive to do it though. Im new on ME so Im not sure.
Seems I misssed the word folders... so sorry

I went to help & typed in Shared folders... it said

To remove a name from the list of remote administrators

Open Passwords properties in Control Panel.
Click the Remote Administration tab.
Select a name in the Administrators list, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion.

If there is no Remote Administration tab, the computer is not set up to give others access to your files. For information on allowing others to manage your files, click Related Topics below.
If there is no Administrators list on the Remote Administration tab, your computer is not set up to control access by using a list of names. For information on controlling access with a list, click Related Topics below.
You must have at least one valid entry in the Administrators list for remote administration to be effective.
Another way to open Control Panel is to click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. If you don't see the item you want, click view all Control Panel options.
Savvy :) hope that helps....let me know
