Default Locking Programs from other Users

Hi everyone,

I was curious if there is any way for me to prevent other users on my computer from accessing certain files and programs..

I am running windows xp home.

Thank you,

if you had professional, you could use group policy.
One thing to do would be to set them up with users rights, then modify ther permissions to the install folder, so that they don't have rights to do anything with it. But be careful when changing permissions. Don't take your self out.

Good luck
