Windows 7: Disabling the IPC$ Administrative Share

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Disabling the IPC$ Administrative Share

Currently I am running Windows 7 64bit HP
How can I disable the IPC$ Administrative Share that can be seen in computer management under shares. I used a reg hack to be able to remove the other default shares:
(How to Disable Administrative Shares in Windows 7)

For Workstations (Vista/Windows7)
Click Start—>Run type regedit click ok
For vista users Enter your UAC credentials to continue.
Open the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE branch.
Open the SYSTEM branch.
Open the CurrentControlSet branch.
Open the Services branch.
Open the LanmanServer branch.
Select the Parameters branch.
Select Edit, New, DWORD (32-bit) Value. Vista & Windows 7 adds a new value to the Parameters key (If you have the key just check for correct value).
Type AutoShareWks and press Enter. (You can leave this setting with its default value of 0.)
Restart Windows to put the new setting into effect.

Doing this removed every share except for the IPC$ share and I was wondering if anyone knows a way of removing this one as well...

If you want no sharing, consider disabling the server service.
