Windows 2003, XP and 2K: Disable Admin Shares (c$, d$, etc.)
 
Start RegEdit.
 
Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\
             Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
.
 
Create the following DWORD value if it does not already exist:
 
     For workstations - AutoShareWks
 
     For servers - AutoShareServer
 
Set the value to zero (0) to disable the shares, or set it to one (1) to re-enable them.
 
You will need to reboot the workstation or server for this to take effect.
