    I've been surfing around all sort of tech pages, but I can't find any information that matches XP... How do I turn off that IPC-Share thing? The old stuff for win2k don't work... :-(

    Please help!

    Have you tried this

    To disable the automatic administrative shares (such as, C$, D$), go to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" hive and in \System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters create a REG_DWORD called "AutoShareServer" (for NT Server) or "AutoShareWks" (for NT Workstation) with the value "0".


    net share IPC$ /delete - but you need to do that after each boot

    Yes, I've already done that registry-thing. C, and WINDOWS Share are gone, because I deleted them. But there is no way to delete that IPC stuff. No option like "delete" or "turn off". That's actualy the problem... :-(

    Any other hints?

    (But thanks anyway, max!)
