I'm running Win2K Pro on a network. I set my machine to Do Not Share C. On reboot it switches back to sharing. Where is this set?

I am in a workgroup but it's a a small company and we've changed things around a lot, no real IT guy here to ask. And it only really happens to my machine. Any ideas?

Do you have a second user account on this machine? Does it occur with that account?

start > run
gpedit.msc
enter

Look under COMPUTER CONFIG > WINDOWS > SCRIPTS
and
Look under USER CONFIG > WINDOWS > SCRIPTS

Anything in there?

If not

Start > run
cmd
enter

type
net share
enter

what do you see?

-------------------------------------------------------------
ADMIN$ C:\WINNT Remote Admin
IPC$ Remote IPC
The command completed successfully.

How is it shared ? Does it look like:

C$ ?


That is an administrative share...it will not appear in network neighborhood...only people with local admin rights can access it?
