    I believe there is a way to disable the system drive mapping for C$ on boot up but I can’t find any information on how to do. Any help?

      The system automatically creates hidden “administrative shares” for its logical drives C:, D:, and so forth which it names C$, D$ and so forth. It also creates the admin$ hidden share for to the \winnt folder. These shares are designed for remote access support by domain administrators. By default, if you delete these admin shares, they will be recreated when you reboot. To disable permanently so they will not be recreated on the next reboot, use the following Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP registry hack:
      Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
      Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters
      Name: AutoShareServer for servers
      Name: AutoShareWks for workstations
      Type: REG_DWORD
      Value: 0
