http://www.consealfirewall.com/ and download the demo. There is no way to close port 139 without third party tools (well, you could uninstall ALL networking, but then you wouldnt be able to surf anyway)

gin: Win9x will still keep 139 open, as it is also used for IPC.

and also, without thrid party tools, you cannot block filesharing for a single interface. In other words, you cant do that if you still want to use filesharing on an internal network.

in win98, in order to disable file sharing, just unbind the Microsoft Family Logon from the TCP/IP protocol. the system will say that your network is incomplete, just ignore it. comments are welcomed...
