Why are the network shares still active in Windows 2000 after I unbind the "Client for Microsoft Networks" service?

A. Unbinding the "Client for Microsoft Networks" service disables the remote procedure call (RPC) service but doesn't disable the LANman Server service, which serves shares on your computer. To stop serving shares, either delete the shares or unbind the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" service.

To unbind the "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" services in Win2K, perform the following steps:

  1. Start the Network control panel applet (go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network and Dial-up Connections; right-click Local Area Connection; and select Properties from the context menu).
  2. From the General tab, clear the "Client for Microsoft Networks" checkbox and clear the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" checkbox. (To bind these services, select both checkboxes.\}
  3. Click OK.
