I currently working on Project for my company to set the internal windows firewall to reduce the amount of viruses. Once of the Services we are looking to turn off is "File & Print Sharing" on each device but doing so does not allow the use of the following network Dir " \\pcname\Admin$". Some of the Network App we use like “Bomgar software Agent” and "McAfee EPO Agent" that downloads in to “Admin$” share.  Is there away to use the” \\pcname\Admin$”  w/o using  File & Print Sharing in Windows 7 or XP O/S systems.

Turn off the File & Print sharing and then access your network share but this time try to access it via valid network credentials necessary to access the computer having this shared path.

The limitation you seem to be placing deals with preventing the spread of the virus once it finds its way to one of the systems.

No. To access shares you need file and printer sharing.

In a windows network the only way to prevent a virus from spreading is by preventing it from entering/compromising a system on the network.
You could make sure that all users are limited/restricted users on the computer they operate.
You could setup a proxy for Internet access that will scan the content to make sure a virus laden content is not downloaded. A similar approach can be used to make sure virus laden attachment does not make its way on the system via email.
The anti-virus application on each workstation should prevent the introduction of the virus via an external USB/CD/DVD, etc.
