Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can remove them but Microsoft does not recommend doing so. They are there, as the name suggests, for administors to manage the server remotely.

    Hi, As already said you should not remove administrative shares. These shares are used not only by the OS itself for some specific tasks, but also by some applications. If you do this, you can brake some applications or even OS related features. If you're concerned about security you should tweak those shares at the share level, and ofter that with NTFS permissions. Regards,
