    Why don't you just delete it?

    Apart from that you have every hard drive shared like c$

    It says you cant because you need permission from the system to delete it.

    What does?

    Show a picture please.

    You said that you wanted to delete a shared folder from your users folder - if there is something in your users folder requiring SYSTEM authority then you have a serious problem.

    If on the other hand you are talking about C$ then that isn't a share at all since Windows XP and isn't in your users folder either.

    Its just a folder called shared files that contains four subfolders called shared music, shared pictures, shared documents and shared videos. I want to get rid of this complete folder since i dont want to share anything.

    If you want help you need to give pictures showing the information asked not your interpretation.

    Perhaps you typed something wrong, perhaps there is a real issue but at the moment it is impossible to tell.

    I could speculate you are talking about reparse points but it would only be speculation.
