Ok, in my house theres my computer, and my parents computer, both wired into the router.

My parents PC can access mine through the network, it can see my user files and my hard drive, How do I remove it's access to my pc?
 
Load windows up on your system.

In the windows search bar type: File sharing .

Select from the search results to the top left
Manage advanced file sharing.

Select the turn off public file sharing option in the new window that opens.
Click save changes.

Restart windows for the new settings to have effect.
Files and folders will no longer be seen on the network from your system Fizzclan.

devices with the same user name and password should be able to access shares without being asked for a password. You may be able to access shares on your other devices with you login/password or even save the credentials to it.

The properties on a shared folder have a security and share tab that can be used to set permissions. You have to make sure the security permissions are at least as restrictive as the share permissions because they will over-ride share permissions for allowing access(share has access and ntfs security has no access than no access will win).

It does not take long to set permissions and gets things fixed up.
