What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can disnbaled it but I don't think it will stop updates from donwloading.Once the machine is restarted the C$ share would be enabled again.

There are users who have changed the registry setting so that the shares do not come back on restart

are the users administrators. You should make them normal users.
If you know what the registry key is then you should be able to add them to all the workstations through group policy
