Hi,
 Sysvol and Netlogon seems to be shared by default when I enable sharing, does it pose any security problems? Can i actually unshare it?

They have to be sahred as part of the Domain structure. I would strongly suggest you leave them along as the security setup on the folders is fine.

NETLOGON/SYSVOL - The Netlogon share is used on Windows NT domain controllers to authenticate users. In Windows 2000/3, the SYSVOL share carries out these functions. The SYSVOL share includes group policy information which is replicated to all local domain controllers.
