    just a quick question

    how do i unshare folders that i dont want to be shared with other users on diffrent accounts for example!!

    i have this file called muzik and i dont want other people accessing this file threw other user like "guest user" how do i make sure they can't access this file

    or, for instance kazaa, i wanna make sure that other users accounts on my computer dont have access to kazaa or other programs

    and i wanna make sure that they can't download anything from(kazaa or internet explorer) on other user accounts !!!!

    right click on the folder u want to restrict, select properties, choose security and click on advanced

    be careful not to deny access to ALL

    delete all other entries in security>advanced and give your username full access
    if u want to customize then in each username check what u want them to be able to do with this folder

    in control panel>users, enable the guest account
    if the user doesn't have the administrator password, the user cant log in and use it

    the built in guest account has strict restrictions but u can customize

    by default any user can load ie and most programs, unless u restrict them the access
