    In the immediate sense you can right-click on My Computer and select Manage. From the MMC window that opens, look for a Shared Folders section underneath System Tools. In there you can examine Sessions and Open Files to see what user is *currently* accessing your stuff, and even disconnect them if you so desire. Just a thought.
