Quote:
The system automatically creates hidden "administrative shares" for its logical drives C:, D:, and so forth which it names C$, D$ and so forth. It also creates the admin$ hidden share for to the \winnt folder. These shares are designed for remote access support by domain administrators. By default, if you delete these admin shares, they will be recreated when you reboot. To disable permanently so they will not be recreated on the next reboot, use the following Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP registry hack:
Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Par ameters
Name: AutoShareServer for servers
Name: AutoShareWks for workstations
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0

Exactly right, this is probably your problem wahoo_128. Just to add to csamuels solution for ya, 9 times out of 10 the above entries won't exsist. Don't beat yourself up trying to find them if you don't see them where csamuels explained above.....just create the AutoShareServer and AutoShareWks DWORD entries and edit the values to 0

I make use of those shares all the time. They are very useful.

I concur Major. In fact, all of the shares that I ever use are followed by a $.

Yes, I never have to share anything. All I need is a short cut to c$, d$ and e$. I have so many folders I need to access on my other computer, it's the most efficient to use these shares.

it would be a security nightmare tho. imagine malware gets installed on your machine and destroys data on networked pcs. This could be avoided by not logging on as an admin....which I know we all do.

I've seen instances of networked pcs using cached credentials to access my shares.
