worried that I opened my files up to the internet

Using the Add Network Place Wizard, I accidentally answered "no" to the following warning:

File and printer sharing is running on the TCP/IP connection you
will use to access the Internet. Other users on the Internet
might be able to access your files.

Would you like Windows to disable file and printer sharing on the
TCP/IP connection to the Internet?

I immediately realized my mistake and right clicked to delete the connection from My Network Places.

Is that all I need to do?

What are the consequences?

I have a hardware firewall on my LAN . . . if that helps at all.

Thanks for the help . . . I've been sweating this out.
