How can I make this so easy that it gets done?

    The root of the C-drive on my wife's notebook -- running XP -- has
    sharing enabled including "allow users to change my files" for
    legitimate reasons and the home network is firewalled, MAC filtering
    enabled on wireless transmitter, WEP enabled, not close to any other
    houses etc. I'd like to make it really simple, ideally with a
    one-click desktop icon, for my wife to kill sharing of her drives
    whenever the notebook leaves home and might log into a public network.
    Obviously there should be a one-click icon to restore sharing when she
    brings it home.

    Thanks in advance

    These programs let you store multiple network configurations and switch between
    them easily:


    MultiNetwork Manager

    See if either of them gives you "one-click" functionality. I would think that
    either should have that possibility if you work hard enough.

    And please don't contribute to the spread of email address mining viruses.
    Learn to munge your email address properly, to keep yourself a bit safer when
    posting to open forums. Protect yourself and the rest of the internet - never
    post your address unmunged.

    Paranoia comes from experience - and is not necessarily a bad thing.
