Default Help-Locking Files

Please Help Me. Is there any way that I can lock files in my computer to stop other users from accessing them when they're using it? Files I'd like to lock include....word documents, excel, jpegs. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Maybe but is this at home or the office? If it's the office well thats a joke,are you spreading porn or something ?

Why not save this for your private home PC ?

You could make the files that you don't want hidden when you are not using them, that way whoever can't even see the files....

Put them in your Documents Folder - other users can't see them if you've said that they can't.

Lol - he has a point! If they shouldn't have secrets from you then you shouldn't have secrets from them. If you can do it - what will stop them from asking us and them doing it?
