I'm not exactly sure if it's this way in english versions of XP because I am translating it from Dutch.


When you're in your admin account, open up explorer and right click the folder(s) that you don't want to have viewed on other acconts. Now, under the option search you will see something like: sharing and protecting. Click that and look at what you can change from there.

Again, I appologise for not having the exact instructions because of my translation.

windows comes with a guest account built in. it is usually disabled by default. the guest account shouldn't have access to anything they don't create. (don't quote me cuz i always leave it disabled...nasty little guests)
