To delete the hidden administrative shares for all root partitions and volumes (such as C$) and the system root folder (ADMIN$) and to prevent Windows from re-creating them, add an AutoShareWks DWORD value to the following registry key, and then set its value data to 0:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

(Blatantly stolen from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314984...)

Please be sure to view the article to see the warnings about disabling the Administrative Shares.

You can create a batch file and have it run automatically in the background at startup.

In the cmd line type:
net share

To list all shared resources


In a batch file:
net share ipc$ /delete
net share admin$ /delete
net share c$ /delete
...
net share z$ /delete

For each share you want to remove. The share's will return after you reboot unless you put this batch file in your startup diectory
