Just share it but put a password on it, so when you access it from your laptop it will ask for a password, this way if your laptop ever gets a virus the virus can't spread unless your laptop in logged in to your desktop.

you could make the share read-only (if that meets your needs). Also I assume you have a good, up-to-date anti-virus & anti-spyware program?
