I accidentally deleted the admin$ share using a registry cleaner.  When I try to re-create it I get this error:

The folder could not be shared for the following reason:
The parameter is incorrect.


I was able to re-create the c$ share though.

Make sure it is not recreated on reboot anyway.

It is Windows 7. However the actual share is deleted. When I go into computer management it is not there. I have tried recreating it and it gives me the above error. I have also tried the registry change and file and print services is already enabled.

Did you reboot or not - it was a serious question. Normally, after any reboot, those shares get recreated, question is, does the recreator need the regkeys :)

I believe I tried that but I will try again when I get to work tomorrow. It wasn't deleted via computer management. A program called Tuneup utilities disabled it. I didn't mean to click yes on the option to disable it but accidentally did. Go figure.

You can reset security to defaults by performing an inplace upgrade.
You could also try to import the registry bits for the admin$ share from another computer.

Where would I find all of the registry bits I need to import? Sorry for the delay in replying but have been quite busy.
