Is they a way i can stop users from acessing the C: drive on my xp pc

Do you mean completely, which would seem pointless as no-one could do anything. Or do you want to restrict certain rights.
To do this you have to create an account for each user and assign their access level.
Go to User Accounts in Control Panel.

Of course she can, she has to in order to do anything on the computer, assuming Windows is installed on your C drive, and I suspect it is.

You will need to follow the advice in the links provided by huggyg71 so that you can restrict user rights to indivual programs and files.

What version of XP do you have?

Then you have access to all of XP's security features, which took me a while to figure out. It does require some thought and care.
Basically you can (as administrator) access the properties of any folder or file, choose the security tab and then user. You can then check boxes to set user permimissions for whatever it is.
