Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to provide additional information. Are you logging in to a domain? Do you have administrator rights to your local computer? Are there others that will logon to your computer? IS local logon [logon to this computer] authorized? There is a difference between logon local and logon through a domain account. This determines where the authority for this action is controlled.

IF you have local administrator rights then you can use NTFS permissions to limit access. BUT, usually any administrator will still be able to have access or at least take ownership then have rights.

    You can use PGP to create a vurtual folder. Without your key, it would be virtually impossible to see the files. Ideally, you would keep your private key on a USB token. (Something you have and Something you know.) The plus to PGP is that you can encrypt e-Mails and other information to others using PGP. The miniuses are that to do so the other person needs to have pgp as well. www.pgp.com - For PGP They have a version 9 desktop which is a bit costly, if you do not want to buy it I have the 6.5 version that is free. www.ealaddin.com - Token, normally ~$40.00 for a 32k token. If you are interested in the free version let me know.
