Disable Automatic Hidden Shares

I don’t know the reason, why Windows always automatically create hidden shares to the local disk drives and some user’s folders. The shares are normally accessed via \\\c$ and \\\d$ depending on the drive letter.

To disable this condition,
1. open registry editor, Start | Run, type regedit and press Enter.
2. find key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\
3. Create a new DWORD value for ‘AutoShareWks’ and ‘AutoShareServer’. Set the value to equal ‘0’. If the values already exist then modify them to equal ‘0’.
4. restart the computer.
