set to NTFS then configure uses access or if shared set premissions in the folder option. You can also setup a bios password so that on boot before even getting past post it asks for a password.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

File Protector 2001 is a utility that protects your files and folders. Protection is achieved by hiding files and folders (including subdirectories), or by making them undeletable, unrenamable, unreadable, unmodifiable, or unexecutable. With the wild cards feature, you can protect all files that have the same extension (such as EXE or DLL). You can also set all your files to have their attributes unmodifiable, so that read-only files remain unalterable and hidden files remain hidden. Version 2.05b fixes some incompatibilities on some Windows XP platforms.
