    Folder sharing


    Trying to set up a network for the first time. My intention was to share public folders but when I right click on my user folders (e.g. PC\Users\Dave\Documents they are shown as "Shared" and clicking on "Stop sharing" doesn't seem to do anything.
    Am I missing something?

    Hi, i have 2 computers connected to the same lan network, from yesterday i cannot acces the shared folder on the PC1 , the message is :

    "you can't acces this shared folder because your organisation's security policies block unauthenticated guest acces. These policies help protect your PC from unsafe or malicious devices on the network "

    What's the problem ?

    Thanks

    Stop sharing - Users connected to a shared folder are disconnected when you stop sharing it. but you did not share it, so it do nothing.

    Thanks for the reply.

    How do I change my user folders so that when I look in "Properties - Sharing" it will show as "Not shared" rather than "Shared" ?

    Finally worked it out. Had to go into "Computer Management" - "Shared Folders" - "Shares" then right click the user folder and turn sharing off.
