When you have a lot of files that you don't want someone to see, even when they have experience with Windows XP, here's a little proven solution of mine. On each drive I have there is a hidden file called "System Volume Information", when clicking on this there is an .ini file called "Desktop" normally present. I changed the icon for this "System Volume Information" (which is basically a folder) to that of a pie chart with a chunk coming out, and I did this for each "System Volume Information" folder that there was (which was four in my case). I then deleted the Desktop.ini file (sometimes it is not present in which case just do what I say next>>), and then created a folder and named it...yes you guessed it..."Desktop" - giving it the icon of a .ini file. Now when someone is looking around on your computer, like my friend so frequently does no mine, they will not notice anything out of the ordinary - it's just a Windows file thing to them. It works, but you may find this a pile of pooh. Works best on younger brothers or sisters though who so often don't have a clue.
