Locked-Down XP Account

#1
I need to find a way that would prevent a user logged into my computer's regular XP account from being able to see the folder [Secret Account Name]'s Documents in My Computer. Is this possible? I just want the account to be invisible in My Computer. Thanks.

I know how to use encryption, but my problem is actually making the folder invisible when My Computer is opened. Does anyone know how to do that?

You can go into folder properties and make the folder hidden. Unless the user knows how to changer your folder options to view hidden folders, they will never know it is there.
