if you are using w2k with NTFS then create a dir and change the permissions so only you have access, unless he is the admin he cannot get in

store all your peronal stuff here

also you should both have diiferent my document folders, check the permissions on your and change accordingly

Double click My Computer. Click once to highlight your harddrive. Look in the lower left side. It will say either NTFS or FAT32. If it's FAT32, then nothing you can do about permissons on folders.

what if i have 3 users on one computer ie (1st user is me,2nd user is my brother and 3rd user is ???)

what if i want only my brother to view some of the programs i have on my user and not the 3rd user??? is there anyway i can do that ???


and is there a way i can do that like left click on tha program or sumting like that to share it or not to share it with other users???


(ie.under my user name i created a file called "Music"! and i want my brother to only use it, but not the 3rd user how can i do that??
