    I was wondering if there was a registry hack or a setting to remove the automated administrative shares under Windows ME. Apparently when you create a shared folder, ME automatically creates Admin shares for each drive letter. I can't seem to find a way to disable it in Windows ME, so maybe there is a util or registry hack available.. Thanks in advance!

    gee this was not easy to find & I just did this an hr ago.

    In HELP... I typed in multiple user & follwed thru til I found this under another few clicks...at "related topics"

    To change desktop settings for multiple users

    Open Users properties.
    Click the name of the user you want to change settings for, and then click Change Settings.
    Follow the instructions on the screen.


    you can delete there.

    That doesn't seem to be what I am looking for. I want to DISABLE the administrative shares on all my drive letters. When you right click on the drive it doesn't say that it is shared, so most likely it is some type of registry setting. It shares the drive letters as "C$" "D$" "E$", etc.. but i cannot remove them.

    Go to start/settings/control panel/users
    it will bring a panel up & you click the name you want to delete & then click remove.

    ps you may have to be in each drive to do it though. Im new on ME so Im not sure.
