I would like to prevent the Scheduled Tasks folder from showing up as a share when people run \\ServerName.  How can I do that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's been a while, but I think I had this one time too, to fix it, On the server, I went to the scheduled tasks folder, right clicked on it, and selected Hidden.

Let me know if that works

Here is the solution already explained,

Deleting mentioned reg entry sometimes may help to increase the speed of internet (don forget to take backup of reg, before deleting the entry)

Hi sapphire and AtB, neither of those methods worked.  The only thing that has worked so far is if I am using a non-admin account, the shared scheduled task but I removed the key and I changed the System32 Tasks folder to hidden, and rebooted the server but the share stills shows up.
