i just issued the command and to my surprise all my Drives/Partitions are shared.

C:\Users\ABC>net share

Share name Resource Remark

C$ C:\ Default share
D$ D:\ Default share
E$ E:\ Default share
IPC$ Remote IPC
ADMIN$ C:\Windows Remote Admin
Users C:\Users
The command completed successfully.


if i type \\my ip
i get network error that windows cannot access the \\my ip.
check spellings...............

from computer management > shared folders > shares if i click on the sahre and stop it i get the following error.

i have scaned my pc with malware bytes antimalware,spybot search and destroy and avg free .. but they found nothing wrong.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Default share doesn't mean they are shared, it just means the settings are default. My drives say the same thing and they are definitely not shared.

The Admin share is the one that allow you the User to access your own drives.
