How can I set a password to my NetBIOS Shares?

Recently I have ran a ran a fingerprint on my NT (2000)system.  After analysing my results i found that my shares were accessible without a password.

Example:

NetBIOS Shares:
     Name: \\myip\IPC$ Remark: Remote IPC
     Type: Interprocess communication (IPC)
     Name: \\myip\ADMIN$ Remark: Remote Admin
     Type: Special share reserved for interprocess communication (IPC$) or remote administration of the server (ADMIN$)
     Accessible without password.
     Name: \\myip\C$ Remark: Default share
     Type: Special share reserved for interprocess communication (IPC$) or remote administration of the server (ADMIN$)
     Accessible without password.

Is there a way possible to secure my NT (NetBIOS Shares)?

Hi yah4x0r,

Have you disabled the Guest account? Do you have any users with blank passwords? If so, you should disable the Guest account and set passwords on your accounts.

If that worked for you, then why the B grade?
