Ok I know this is a newbie Question, but when I logon to my server via Vpn or on my LAN. I see the netlogon and the sysvol folders. Is there a way to logon to the server without exposing these folders to a security risk? Or is this a risk I should be worried about?

these folder contains your logon script. these are shared by default so the logon script will be able to run when the user logon.

however, normal user will not able to delete the content of the folders.

therefore, you dont have to worry about it.

You can't hide them.  As already stated, there is no reason to worry as the user only has Read permissions and nothing more.

Technically, you COULD hide these, but you don't really need to as was stated above.  As long as users don't have "Show Hidden Files" enabled, you can change the properties of the SYSVOL folder to be "Hidden".  This won't hide the network shares, but it would make it so that users don't see anything if they clicked on them.
