Users sometimes pipe network commands to NUL to shield their workstations from network messages. But If SHARE.EXE is loaded and any LAN Manager LOAD command has been piped to NUL before you enter Windows enhanced mode (LOAD NETBEUI > NUL) then all subsequent piping to NUL from within Windows reports a sharing violation.
To avoid this, refrain from piping protocol LOAD commands to NUL. It should not pose a problem: LOAD commands return only two lines of information.
