That is the default administrative share. If you do not need to share
folders for anyone you can uninstall file and print sharing. A firewall will
also block internet access to your computer if it is configured properly.
ALWAYS use a complex password for your administrator account whether you
have shares or not. Many worms try to attack the built in administrator
account with a list of commonly used or blank passwords. See the link below
on how to modify the registry to remove the administrator shares. --- Steve
