    Isn't the IPC a pretty important share? Isn't IPC an administrative share for accessing the computer at all (meaning log into IPC to see the shares or something)?

    You do NOT want to disable this share. It is crutial to your PC running properly. Nobody has access to this share besides the PC itself.

    IPC$: Used for remote administration of network services using named pipes.

    However, if you really want to remove it follow these steps:

    Start
    Run
    Type 'cmd' and press OK
    Type 'net share /delete IPC$'

    I warn you though, it may mess up your system or return on its own. Good luck.

    I don't know exactly how to do what you want, but here is a website that may answer your question.

    madmatt ours crossed, but I agree with you, not smart to get rid of this.

    good luck

    thank you for the warning
    i found a link to a post here:
    http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/showthread.php?threadid=4784&highlight=IPC

    i used the command NET SHARE IPC$ /DELETE
    but it doesnt want to go away
    if you use the command with other default shares it works
    only with the ipc$ share it doesnt work
    any ideas?
    the link you wrote before it actually says the same with the above link i found

    I said: net share /delete IPC$

    It went away on my test machine just fine.

    noop
    it says

    System error 5 has occurred.

    Access is denied.

    something is wrong
    i also noticed that i dont have a menu someone wrote here on my right click on shares :"stop sharing"
    i only have "refresh" and "help" nothing else

    Just curious, why do you want to remove it? You are not supposed to.

    first of all the ipc share is hidden. thats what the $ does. the chances of someone getting access off it is slim.

    u need administrator privilages to remove the share!, that is y it says access denied. but, because it is a hidden share used for remote access and becuase it is a system share you CAN NOT permantly disable it. as soon as u reboot it will be shared again.

    if you can not get to it via the computer management console then do as madmatt said type:(in a dos window)
    net share IPC$ /delete


    dude in all honestly, u don't really need to be concerned about it. it does not pose that much of a system security risk.
    have you renamed your administrator and guest accounts????
