    You install either W2K or XP, and use NTFS file system. Then you can set permissions on directories and files for each user if you like. Obviously, the other user can't be an administrator. :)

    in xp it may work in other windows not sure...
    but put all the things you want hidden in one folder and when you do that right click in folder and select hidden
    now to get to the folder you have to type its location in the navigation bar i.e. C:\ documents and settings\ankit\hiddin stuff
