Why so many shares? This is a virus propagation nightmare waiting to happen.

We have lots of Win9x clients and are hitting a problem with the number of
shares on our NAS. As soon as we hit about 950 shares with win9x machines
have trouble browsing the share list. MS KB202892 explains the problem and
suggests a couple of fixes, one of which is shortening the comments field.
The vast majority of our shares were migrated from other servers
automatically and have a constant comment field. Does anyone know of a tool
I can use to strip the comments fields from our shares?
