In "Device Information" it's showing "Windows Shared Folders" and provides an IP with \\ before and after the IP address. This is showing for all 3 devices connected to the wifi and i NEVER set up windows shared folders......


How do I disable this sharing? How did this happen?

Its evident you did set it up. See above link. This is a Microsoft issue, not Fios.

i would think if you delete the original shared folder from the one machine then it may be removed off the others.
