Windows 7: Can you unshared a folder that's in a shared folder ?

Can you unshared a folder that's in a shared folder ?

As my attached jpg shows...I have a folder within my "MY Pictures" folder that I do NOT want to share.

Is there a way to do this or do I have to move Desktop PICS2 out of the main MY Pictures (shared) folder ?

Also....what is the 'lock" icon on Desktop PICS2 and can it be removed ?

Thanks...TRinAZ
