Windows automatically creates a share for each drive for administrative purposes, and a $admin share. The reason it has the $ prefixed is because these shares are hidden from anyway viewing your shares

The only way you can get rid of those is to disable filesharing altogether.

On Windows xp, you right click the dirve and click the sharing tab. I think this is the sharing you are talking about.

If your running xp then you go to the:
Control Panel
Performance and Maintenance
Administrative Tools
Services

and it will give you a list of the services running or not running. I dont which one your talking about but that is how to get to services.

controlpanel --> network connections --> local area adapter --> properties

In the middle part there UNINSTALL the "file and print sharing for micrsoft networks". Don't uncheck it, get the bloddy crap outta there for good.

Are $c and $admin any threat to the security of my computer?

Cause share watch shows them to be listed as shared. I thought they allowed a remote user to take control of the computer.

With an account that has administrative privileges you can access those shares remotely. You decide if that's a threat or not.

As long as there are not ppl running around with your admin password, then they are not really a threat, and you should rename your administrator account also, that way, they do not only have to figure out the password but also the admin account name
