I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

for simple file sharing try this as a batch file called  NoSFS.bat
@echo off
If {%1}=={} @echo Syntax: NoSFS ComputerName1 [ComputerName2 ... ComputerNamen]&goto :EOF
setlocal
:Next
if {%1}=={} endlocal&goto :EOF
set computer=%1
shift
set computer=%computer:"=%
set key="\\%computer%\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa"
if /i "%computername%" EQU "%computer%" set key="HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa"
@echo reg add %key% /v forceguest /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f
reg add %key% /v forceguest /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f
@echo.
goto :Next

The syntax for using NoSFS.bat is:

NoSFS ComputerName1 [ComputerName2 ... ComputerNamen]
where ComputerNameX is a Windows XP Professional computer name in your network.


As for your other request - I doubt it can be done in a script but here is how to do it

Do it on one machine manually using method 2 - then go into the registry and export it - as a .reg file - then you can run that
