    I've just found this program, Zeb Protect: it's an hardening tool, with three types of features:

    *Can disable five types of files/folder shares (single file and folder sharing under XP Pro, shared folders under XP, administrative shares (C$ and ADMIN$), remote administration share and printers share)
    *Can disable potentially dangerous account types (Anonymous, Guest, Remote registry, etc)
    *Can close some critical ports (RPC, time, 137 139, 445, IPSEC, Upnp, 1023, 1024, etc).

    I didn't try it yet, but it does look like a good alternative to other tools. It was done by a French site, Zebulon.

    Cheers,

    How safe is the convert from FAT32 to NFTS?

    That option scares me.

    Thank you NicM for the information. J'ai l'intention de l'essayer pour voir (I intend to try this freeware to see how it works)
    Cheers;)

    Um . Look hard ! It is a joke that they tell you to download a separate zip file to get the security tab . OUCH !!!! STUPID !!!!!!! Nice possibilities but , pretty pathetic to do this . Good luck

    What about people running XP Pro? :D
    I guess it's just intended to make the download smaller, and you get the zip only if you need it.

    It doesn´t look that special to me, I´m happy with SafeXP, Samurai and XP Antispy. ;)

    You know, I keep seeing all these references to Samurai but I have no idea where to obtain it. The only link I've been able to dig up was to a now non-existant GeoCities page. Anyone know where I could get it, and what the most recent version is? Thanks!

    Nevermind -- Was able to find it by digging deeper in here, thanks.
