Is the issue the following:

You sharing the document & setting folders over the network and the Guest account is able to access the content of this folder.

Or

You have an account, that is not the default administrator account, and when the user log on with that account, then he is able to access every user profile folder in document & settings (in this case the adm)

Right-click the My Documents folder, Properties, Sharing tab. Click "Do not share this folder...." Apply.

Under My Documents & Setting folder you will have several folders that represent each user profile respectively.

For ex: Administrator
User1
User2 and so on

If you want to prevent a User1 that is part of the Adm group to access the files in the Administrator folder and User2. Then you can change NTFS permission on the Administrator and User2 Folder.

You can remove the "everyone group" and "the specific user (ex:User1)" from "Groups or user names" under User Profile Properties Windows/Security tab.

Right-click the My Documents & Setting folder, Choose UserProfileFolder, Properties, Security Tab.

Make sure to add/give system with full control and that your account is present.

Another option is to remove the user from the Administrator account, but he wont be able to add/remove software etc..
