If you can view her folders and files, it means that she has neglected to enable Privacy and set a login password (which kind of defeats the point of privacy settings if you don't do it, so the two go hand in hand).

If you think her files should be private, tell her to login and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\Her Name and enter the properties of this folder to enable privacy. Passwords are set in Control Panel/User Accounts.

It's on the Sharing tab of a folder's properties, by the way.
