Hello,could someone please advise me what to do regarding privicy between user account holders? i am running a pc on windows xp pro. i am the administrator on my pc user accounts,i find that other account holders can access my documents, and i can access theres.even if i am not logged on my self they can go into any file which i have stored in my private account using there own password and open any of my files.without knowing my password.for example, if ric was to go to my comp,click on my peters folder, he can then read any documents that are stored. is there any thing i can do to stop this happening. many thanks again for all your help. peter.

Open My Computer, right click on the folder of your account and select properties. Click on the Sharing tab ...and tick the lil box.
I think a user can only change own settings.

Oh ... and once a folder has been made private I think it may be irriversable.
