Once you have followed all these instruction you would have set a password for your user profile so that next time you logon, you will need a password to login.

Instead of locking folders individualy, you can cut them to your documents and if another user logs on using a different account they will not be able to see the folders moved to your documents.
I lock certain documents using winzip and add a password to the archive. This is a method you may also consider.

You should be able to right click a folder, click properties, click sharing and tick make this folder private
It's not letting me click on the box.

This option is only available for folders included in your user profile. Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, Desktop, Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders private, they are available to everyone who uses your computer.
• When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as well. For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music and My Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its subfolders unless you make them private.
• You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted as NTFS
