Windows 7/Vista: How to access Administrative Shares (C$, IPC$, …) via PaulSpoerry.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/05/13

A while after installing a new copy of Vista or Windows 7, I usually want to be able to access the administrative shares (like C$, Admin$, IPC$, etc).

On Windows 7 and Vista, those are by default not enabled.

To enable them, import this .reg file into the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy"=dword:00000001

You need to reboot your system once after this registry change.

Or from a batch file as Administrator:

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
