    Hello,

    I do not see any reason to see Mac haWindows HFS+ driversrd disk in windows. How to disable Windows HFS+ drivers?

    If windows is attacked by someone or virus, I do not want them access to my mac drive. Is this possible?

    thanks,
    bpn

    The HFS+ driver is read-only. Nothing can happen.

    Well, it could potentially find personal data and use it maliciously.

    But I've used Parallels Desktop since it came out and that essentially has a worse scenario - provides read and write to your Mac HD.

    All,

    Good news, I think I have found out a fix. Before I say it, apple support team has no clue what I was asking.
    anyway, here is the fix. Please tell me if you have something else.

    isabling the OS X file system read feature

    Click Start, then My Computer.
    Double-click on the BOOTCAMP (C:) drive At the These files are hidden screen, click on Show the contents of this folder.
    Double-click on the Windows folder. At the These files are hidden screen, click on Show the contents of this folder.
    Double-click on the System 32 folder. At the These files are hidden screen, click on Show the contents of this folder.
    Double-click on the drivers folder.
    Locate the file AppleMNT (it is a .sys file) and rename it to something like AppleMNT_keep.
    Click Start, then click on Shut Down.
    Click Restart to restart Windows XP.


    DONE!!!!!!
