If you have a firewall (not Windows Firewall), the computers on his network shouldn't be on the "I trust this computer" list. When they aren't the firewall will block all attempts.

Hi,

Make sure Folder/File sharing is turned off.
A good firewall will alert you to any attempt to access you PC, or as Lloyd T put you can set a rule to block any access attempts.
