How do I disable document sharing in a network?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I would like to disable document sharing on the network. How do I change the settings and how do I configure that?

Is there a way wherein I can set all PCs in the network to disable document sharing, and do it without having to go to all the PCs to set them up like that?

Please help.
Thanks in advance.
