I find it quite annoying as I have a user account with a password so I though thats good, however I have noticed that ANY user even the guest user all they have to do to get into my account it go to Computer, users, my name and there it is ALL my personal files/documents etc??? Took me two seconds!!! Whats the point in having a password on my user account???

I know I can right click on a document-properties-security-chnage permissions so that only certain users can access my files, but I have hundreds of files and would be on all day doing that??

Does anyone know a way please?

Anyone know how I can stop this please?

OK I have fixed that. Now I need to somehow only allow the administrator not the guests access to the D drive? Do you know how I would do that?

if you are in winodws 7 try right clicking on the Drive letter > properties > click on Security tab
click on the user Group and edit the permission from there
