you have to go into computer management and click on Shared Folders and identify all the shares.

from there goto a command prompt as administrator.
type at prompt: net share <share name> /delete

example: net share ADMIN$ /delete

Do this for each share name and when you go back to computer management they will be removed from shared folders and shares

I don't understand any of the original question.

What does multiple users mean?

What is running behind programs?

I get the feeling that someone has taken remote control of your system by remote desktop or vnc or such. If so the system is compromised and you may need to do some drastic work to fix it,

Unknown device shows where exactly? Hardware, Explorer?

Hang up and live.

Yes the system is drastically compromised. There is multiple users on the os. In the device manager the processor is doubled. Everything I do has a shadow. In the device manager there is storage volume shadow copies. Also, there is storage volumes. I removed the remote assist program. I believe there is a server working behind windows and at times when i start up the server is busy error message comes up. I attempted to remove svchost.exe by command attrib -h -r -s svchost.exe however this one boggled me it came up as access denied when I logged in as administrator. I attempted to even find values in the HKEY but was unable to find them.

I am still rather confused about all this.

How hard would it be to reload the OS from OEM media, get a good security suite on it, Install all updates to OS an security suite, make and only use a single standard user account and leave the admin account for use as "run as"?

Hang up and live.
