You can turn off share in your computer with

Start -->Settings-->Control Panel-->Network-->File and Print Sharing

As for your IP address I don't know of any way to do that.

there are some hardware routers (read expensive) that can do this, and some hardware firewalls (read expensive) that can do this

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hide your shares adding $ at the end of his name.
Execute "net config server /hidden:yes" without quotes if you have NT4. It will remove the computername in Network Neighborhood.
Or remove any share.
What's your OS ?

if you want to disable other computers pinging you you need a firewall that can block IMGP (I think it was called like this) ports. With Norton Firewall for example you can block pings for your computer and block all other ports and even stealth them. so nobody will see that there is any computer at this ip. You would normally see it if a port is just blocked.
Other firewall can do things like this too ... As for ZoneAlarm, I don't think it can hide ports, I think it only blocks them, but I'm not completely sure.
If you want to control accesses to your computer you should remove all shares (by removing file and printer sharing you might also not be able to play games in LAN but nobody will see you then).
If you did not share any folders you might still have some shares, so called administrative shares(if you have NT or 2000). This means with C$, D$ ... your drives are shared like this even if you remove those shares (windows reshares them automatically).
to remove those shares you need to change the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ System\ CurrentControlSet\ Services\ LanmanServer\ Parameters
AutoShareServer for Servers and AutoShareWks  for Workstations
0 disables the shares and 1 enables them.

You should also disconnect NetBIOS from your LAN-Connection if you do not need it. Through NetBIOS your computer can also be accessed (it is used for example to read your computers name).
