Tweak of the week
Tweak #9 - september 26, 2001

This poses an enormous security risk.
This tweak disables the automatic sharing.
Go to the registry key:
On a server, add the following REG_DWORD value:
On a workstation, add the following REG_DWORD value:
Set this value to 0.
This reg file does the work for you.
The file works both on workstations and servers.
