Either password-protect all your data/files or make the other person a Limited user (or whatever it's called in Vista).

Surely the simple way is to remove the other administrator and give him/her a limited user account.

In Word and Excel, for example, go to Tools; Protection.

"can you tell me this for office 2007"

No, because I don't use Office 2007.

Hopefully another Forum member will come along and help.

Rather than protect each file/folder why not use something like TrueCrypt click here to create an encrypted file container and put all your private things in there. Only you could access as only you would have the paswword

In Excel click on the 'Review' tab and then use one of the 'Protect' menus.
