I forgot to comment on the PRINTER$ share. This is your
Window's system folder, and it is shared as "read-only".
This is used to make your printer drivers available. It is
very unlikely that you would have any personal files or data
in the system folder. For instance, your registry data is all
stored in user.dat and system.dat in your Windows root
Nonetheless, it's better to be safe than sorry. It's better
to follow the instructions that I outlined to prevent file
and printer sharing across the internet, unless it is your
desire to share them. In which case, just password protect
your shares with a strong password, and don't share your
printer until it's ready to be used, then unshare it again
