    I am following the Microsoft help page at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314984 so I can delete some hidden shares. However, when I right click on a share, there is no "stop sharing" button. Is something wrong? or are these hidden system shares needed?

    I am in Vista Home Premium. Actually, I found a pcmag article specifically for Vista that had the same direction, "right-click any shared item" so the user can select "stop sharing." But I don't have that button...anyone?
