    At work we have a brand new server which replaced a peer to peer network. It is run by Netware. This was great because it stopped a person from 'investigating and playing' with other peoples computers. Now he has set up a windows mini network. Is there any way I can block him from my computer? He does this for entertainment. Also, could he be responsible for my numerous crashes? The new server was set up by professionals.

    Just wondering,

    Greetings

    If you open up the Network properties in Control panel, click on the File and Print Sharing button and make sure that there is no tick in either block.

    Then click OK twice. You may then need to have your Windows install disk in your CD-ROM drive, or the files somewhere on your computer, as it may need them to remove that setting. If the program prompts you about a file that is newer then the one about to be copied, you want to keep the NEWER file.

    This solution does come with a drawback. Afterwards, no-one will be able to see any of the files on your machine, so you will have to copy any shared files to the server somewhere nad have the people share the files, use them from there.

    Cheers
