Re: How to disabe "File and Printer Sharing"?
Stopping a service is Not necessarily the right idea since some services has
multiple functions and dependents.
On each version of Windows there are ways to Uncheck the Sharing.
In any case, ports are blocked, or unblocked by the Firewall (Not the
sharing setting per-se). So depending on which Firewall you are using you
have to block the ports that you are sure you would Not need any more (be
careful, some of these ports are used for Internet connections too).
