Here is a BC "Startup Programs Database" on "How to" disable this service. This may be of some help.
2.disabled it from services, it starts back up.
WMPNSCFG.EXE Refuses to die no matter what one does, have searched Google for the answers and it only brings up more questions the only solution I've found seems to be the command prompt to stop the service as described by Microsoft, however I have no idea how to properly use command prompt and searching for a hint on how to properly use it comes up empty, most likely the problem resides behind the key board
Thanks for trying though

To those still looking for a more permanent solution to the net share not popping up in the 1st place. .
Wmpconfig HMEOff seems to merely disable the svc. If disabling it in the Services manager already fails to prevent it running (as it failed for me), it is likely wmpconfig HMEOff will do nada for you, for that same reason. WMP seems to run this "under the hood" somehow, *even when disabled* (TY M$!).
(CAVEAT: instructions are from Win Vista .. YMMV)
See if you can rename the exe (if you think you will NEVER need/use the net sharing svc), and, if not, if you can change permissions on it (Properties -> Security); if you cannot do the former, the latter is unlikely. If the system will not let you do these things, see if an admin acct you use is owner of the exe (Properties -> Security -> Advanced -> Owner). If not, **give** ownership to that admin, and then rename the exe; that should confound the system into being unable to use it, ever.
Keep an eye out for things that stop working when the net sharing goes away. These things may be applications you like to use (in which case, be prepared to put the exe back the way it was, at least name-wise), or they may be hidden gifts some hacker left you. Most likely, the effect will be nil, as the net share just seems to be something Microsoft stuffs down our throats.
Hopefully, this will be of help to someone. Good luck!

Download SysInternals' "Autoruns", unzip it, run it, and uncheck it in the results. This worked for me in Windows 8 PRO but can't remember about XP.
