Help: Not sharing folders, but can they still be hacked?
I'm using Vista but not sharing any folders at all on my
unsecured wireless network.

However, could a hacker in my apartment complex
still access the hard drive's files if my admin password is blank
(since I never set the admin pw up),

or even just another way,
even though I don't share any folders?

Or is it necessary for me to actually share the folder
for them to even access it?

Thank you for your help.
