You can limit access by right clicking on the drives to be shared and selecting "Sharing". As for the internet, you can set the settings on the computer to deny access using several different methods depending on what network acces s you'd like to allow (a 3rd party firewall with password protection might be an easier solution tho')
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

another note for no-net access.if your router dosent have the options, you could make a static ip address n the computers you dont want net access to, and make threir "gateway" ip address 0.0.0.0 make sure you give them ip and subnet addresses that coordinate with the other lan nodes, so you can share files on the local network.

make a static ip
start>control panel>network connections>look for "local area connection">right click>properties>..look for "tcp/ip" in the middle section>highlight it>properties>here is where you can make a "static" ip address. select "use the following ip address">add the network information in the spaces provided. from what i suggested earlier, all you need is the correct ip address, and the subnet mask. give it a ficticious "gateway" address, or none at all, this will give it lan access but not wan.
