I have Windows 7 Pro on Boot Camp, which is also on a server 2003 domain. When the windows network users log in, they can access the Mac Partition. How do I prevent this from happening?
I know it is read only, but I prefer to have them access only the Windows partition when logged into Windows, and only have them access the Mac partition, when they are logged into Snow Leopard.

Thank you!

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    Rename AppleHFS.sys and AppleMNT.sys

    By doing the following you will disable HFS mount / read mode on windows XP, Vista, 7.

    Navigate to c:/windows/system32/drivers/AppleMNT.sys, rename the AppleMNT.sys file to something like AppleMNT_keep.sys or something of your likings.

    The faulty HFS driver is a valid concern. It seems to happen on many systems.
    You find it in Windows/system32/drivers/AppleHFS.sys

    Renaming to AppleHFS_disabled.sys will avoid the blue screens until you have found another solution or Apple updates Bootcamp 3

    After renaming both myself because they are no longer "*.sys" or something? they are gone. In my case AppleHFS prevented Windows Backup from running to end and was causing error "some files skipped" and while some might find reading convenient, I prefer Windows not have even read-only access.

    You can probably do better with MacDrive8.
