We recently networked our private school so that we could all share a broadband connection. That part is working fine. My problem is - I already had the computers in my classroom set up as a network with the folders shared that we work with. Now my folders can be seen by everyone in the school. How can I fix it so that others can not access my shared folders? I'm running Windows XP Pro on one computer, Home on two computers, and 2000 on five computers.

My classroom is set up as a workgroup. I don't know how the rest of the school is set up.

Is there a way to password protect folders in Windows XP Home and 2000? I'd like to be able to access the computer in the sound booth but not any of the others - or to have anyone else be able to access my classroom.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Is a workgroup okay or should I have set it up as a domain?
