        You want to take off the default administrative shares.

        run regedt32.exe

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\LanmanServer\Paramaters

        Double click on AutoShareServer and set it to 0 to disable it for a server.
        Double click on AutoShareWks and set it to 0 to disable it for a workstation.
        If the entries are not present, Add Value of type REG_DWORD. The Range is 0 (disable) or 1 (enable - the default).

          Dear windux, pls imagine this scenario, u hv installed a domain and configured win2k3 server as gcs along with few group policies for a software dev co. now the devlopers are given win2kprof and winxpprof client systems. In the client systems given to the developers as an administrator u hv to add there login names to the local admin group ok, since there login is now in the local admin group of that client system. the user (developer) can share the drives or folders of that local machine. My requirement is to make that sharing tab disable (grey) so that the devlopers cannot share their drives or folders. Can this task be achieved through group policy....................................."i found an answer in this site http://www.commodore.ca/windows/remo...curity_tab.htm but unfortuantely did not work for me.


          Thanks and regards

            On the desktop, double-click on My Computer.
            Double-click on Control Panel.
            Double-click on the Network icon and Dial Up Connections.
            Right-click on Local Area Connection (the one for your internet
            connection / network card) and select properties. If you are unsure which one is for the internet, it is safe to follow these steps on all connections listed.
            The General tab should already be selected. If it isn't, click it to
            select.
            Turn off file sharing and print sharing by clicking each box to remove
            the check marks.
            Click the OK button.
            Click the OK button on the Network window. You may be prompted to
            restart your computer, if you are prompted then click yes.




            If they are local admins, you're will never stop the sharing. You need to create another group with special permissions.

                I apologize for Windux, perhaps he's having difficulty comprehending your request.

                As far as I am aware there is no way to disable the tab in question. There are several way to disable the security tab, but none for the sharing tab. I spent a bit of time trying to locate the answer on Google groups but no such luck, someone else may yet have the answer.

                  Do you want the computers to share anything ?

                  if the clients computers don't need to share things at all

                  you can disable server service.

                  once you disable it the sharing tab automatically disappear
                  Good Luck

                      This does not help if the developers have sufficient rights. They can use other tools (beside explorer) to create shares.

                        as for afzaluddin, the correct link is http://www.commodore.ca/windows/windows.htm.
                        it seems to be a good one although i didnt checked it.
                        ill come with an opinion after ill check it.

                        as for wkasdo you're right. the developers should not have any rights to change system configuration in the machines.
                        Good Luck
