Are you running windows XP Home or Pro?

If you're running pro, just right click on the hard drive and go to the security tab. Then edit the permissions so that their account cannot read or write to the drive (basically remove all the check boxes for the allow column).

I'd get you the exact instructions, but I'm on my mac right now...


Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
