Hi, I'm curious about something and wonder if someone on here could please give me some advice. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on an Acer Aspire 4830T laptop, it's not a member of a domain and I'm the only user. When I go into Computer Management > Shared Folders > Shares I have 3 showing, C$ (which I understand is a default share) with the path C:\, ADMIN$ with the path C:\Windows and the description "Remote Admin" and IPC$ with no path and the description "Remote IPC".
When I hit "Stop sharing" the message says, "This share was created for administrative purposes only. The share will reappear when the server service is stopped and restarted or the computer is restarted. Are you sure you wish to stop sharing ADMIN$?". When I try to look at it's properties, it says, "This has been shared for administrative purposes. The share permissions and file security cannot be set."
Is this normal? What remote admin? It seems illogical, like I'm allowing a stranger access to my machine so any explanations would be very gratefully received, thanks in advance.
