    I just installed a new hard drive and installed windows 7 64 bit on it. I
    copied the settings from the old hard drive to the new. Now when I down load
    a file it shows a lock icon on the file. When I take it to another location
    like the desktop the lock goes away. I also noticed when I right click on
    icons now I have a sharing selection that I did not in the past have. How do
    I get rid of this. I am the only user and I dont want to use homegroups or
    anything like that.
