Sharing Hard disks Folders

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

Hi all

I think i might be having a Trojan horse in my Pc. Basically I’ve noticed that, on the hard disk “properties� window, the “sharing� option is ticked on “share this folder�.
I have tried to tick the “do not share this folder� option but, every time I reboot, it resets on “share this folder�. Now (as I’m a newbie) I ‘m wondering if this is normal or , if not, what can I do in order to hang to the “do not share this folder� option?

Thanks

    Hi,

    all hard drives on Windows are shared by default. These shares are hidden
    (but well known about) and are called Administrative shares. Only
    Administrators can access these shares (by default).

    Here is some more information about these shares:
