Administrative shares on Exchange server on NT4



I have been battling a virus threat that's been intruding on our Exchange Server 5.5. In an attempt to lock down this server I noticed that there are two shares on the system (c and e). However, these are not the administrative shres c$ and e$.  If I were to change this to only administrative shares, would this impact Exchange in any way? Or does Exchange 5.5 need custom shares? I can't imagine why the previous administrator created these two shares instead of the default admin shares. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

These are created when Exchange is installed. It is not recomended that they be changed.
