What do you mean by enabling them?  They are hidden, built in shares created by Windows and are always accessible by an Administrative account.  Therefore they are always "enabled" unless you delete them.

You can re-add them via a remote Computer Management connection if you have permissions and re-add the shares via Computer Manager > Shared Folders > Shares. If you want to stop the users from being able to modify them change their local security permission on the computer i.e. remove them from local administrator group, etc.

What mass2612 said would work if you had just a limited number of PCs to "repair".  But if you need to automate adding them back for a large environment (ie. hundreds or thousands of PCs) you could probably put it in a script. You'd just have to get those users that are missing the shares to run the script.  I guess you could do that in a group policy and have the script check for the existing shares.  I agree that you need to get them out of the local admin group though to keep from having to do this again.

Try this site, you should be able to write a short script using these samples to add the C$share back to PCs that are missing it and then just call it in their logon script. http://www.cruto.com/resources/vbscript/vbscript-examples/vbscript-sitemap.asp 0 LVL 1 Expert Comment ID: 16949065 You can do it by Group Policy 1. create text file AdminShares.adm: ; start of file CLASS MACHINE CATEGORY "My Policies" CATEGORY "Network" POLICY "Administrative shares" KEYNAME System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters PART "Create server shares" CHECKBOX VALUENAME AutoShareServer VALUEON NUMERIC 1 VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0 END PART PART "Create workstation shares" CHECKBOX VALUENAME AutoShareWks VALUEON NUMERIC 1 VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0 END PART END POLICY END CATEGORY END CATEGORY ; end of file 2.

change the reg key in a logon script.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"forceguest"=dword:00000000

sorry for the late reply! but that reg key will disable Simple File Sharing in the registry. Slap that in a logon script and it will set all the computers to disable SFS.

looks like you found your solution!
