  1. Disable Administrative Hidden Shares


    Administrative shares are hidden network shares that allow system administrators to have remote access to every disk volume on a network-connected system. These shares may not be permanently deleted but may be disabled. Windows users can use the net share command to view all of the shares (including the hidden shares) on your computer.

    With this batch script disable or enable Administrative Hidden Shares.
