Windows 7: Unshare multiple folders

Unshare multiple folders

Hi there, Can someone tell if how to stop sharing multiple folders at once in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit? When I go to Computer Management / Shared Folders / Shares and right-click a folder, there is no option to "Stop Sharing". Is there a way to fix this or another way to stop sharing multiple folders at once? Or a third-party app? All the posts I have found online just resort to going to each individually shared folder in Windows Explorer and use the context menu to unshare them one-by-one. Cheers.
