I have just added an account on my computer for a friend but I dont want her to see some folders and the slave 160 gig drive I have. I am the administrator and I set her up with a limited account but I dont know how to lock the other folders. Any kind of help would be welcome.

Are all these folders "shared" in XP? If so, you need to remove the "everyone" group from the folder permissions, and only add the people that should have access. Make sure to give full control to "administrator". If you have never used permissions before, let me know. This post could get really really long!. Oh, and it only works properly on NTFS permissions. Maybe you could give me an example of how you want it set up?
