Go to the permissions properties and add the user and set his/her permission to DENY READ, WRITE, FULL CONTROL

why exactly are you not wanting to share with this particular user? What kind of network is this? Domain or workgroup?

In a workgroup setting, if you know his log on name, create that user account on your machine and lock his permissions down

or

Remove the everyone group and create USER accounts for everyone else, then allow only them by adding them to the permission share
