Windows 7 Share Drive Patch

Intended for those experiencing issues with long delays on the shared drives. This script will adjust the computer's settings to allow for larger files, longer transfer times (to ensure a successful copy process) and disabled auto LAN detection to improve compatibility. Once you've run it, restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
