if you use the net share /delete option for each share, this will recreate on startup (goold old Windows), so ensure you have the net share /delete commands in a startup script

Select Edit, New, DWORD (32-bit) Value,type "AutoShareWks" and press Enter. (You can leave this setting with its default value of 0.)
If you have the key just check for correct value.
Restart Windows  to put the new setting into effect

Maybe easier would be to open Computer Management and navigate to:
System Tools | Shared Folders | Shares

right click on the ADMIN$ share and select 'stop sharing' option. Do the same for the C$ drive.

Nik
