    Default Can't disable files or printer sharing in WIn 8?

    Hi guys,

    I need your help in this windows 8 issue.

    I just installed windows 8 Beta 64 bit on my pc about 3-4 weeks ago and iut works quite well at the very beginning, but now it has really annoying me a lot. Been trying quite unsuccessfully to "Turn off file and printer sharing", under Control Panel> Network and Sharing Center> "Change Advanced Sharing Settings".

    I have tried many waye to disable it but with no luck. does anyone know waht could be causing this? if you can come up a fix for this win 8 case many thanks in advance.

    Disable the sharing of files and printer in win 8.
    # Open Control Panel in the Start Menu.
    # Open Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel.

    Select Change advanced sharing settings in the left column of the Network and Sharing Center.
    Expand the network you want to disable file and printer sharing on by clicking the down arrow on the right of the profile.
    Select Turn off file and printer sharing and then click Save changes.

    You did it in the same way?

    Hope this helps.

    1. Open the Network And Dial-Up Connections folder.
    2. Go to Advanced | Advanced Settings.
    3. In the Bindings box on the Adapters and Bindings page, deselect the TCP/IP protocol under the File And Printer Sharing branch.

    If you’re configuring a dial-up connection:

    1. Click the Networking tab.
    2. Deselect the File And Printer Sharing service.
