Windows 7: Network sharing problem


02 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64 Build 7600.16384
 
 
Network sharing problem

Hi all, wonder if anyone can help here.

I have tried over and over to completely disable sharing over my home network of my personal documents folder (not the public folder) yet it still shows up and is fully accessible on any computer in the house. I have a password but that's not the point, I want to be able to make the my documents folder inaccessible completely from other computers on the network. It's disabled in the sharing properties but that makes no difference. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

If you are part of the homegroup just uncheck the documents folder here and save changes.
