You also have several options on sharing. You can make the share
read-only if all you're worried about is 'unauthorized' changes. You can
assign a password so only those you give the password to can access the
share. And in WinXP (Pro, at least) you can set access rights for each

There are probably loopholes in these so if you need 'tight' security
then yes, your best bet is to remove the share when you're done with
it-but if you set it up right then you can still get reasonable security
while leaving it set up permanently.
