to hide users from 'net'


I noticed a pretty command 'net' which can gather alot information on
the remote machines. I typed 'net -Imy_IP user' and it displayed a list of all
my registred users. IMHO this list can see anyone in the local network. Is it
possible to hide my user list from others in the network?
