    I have just made 2 user accounts in my Windows XP Pro, my own account and a
    guest account... I dont want my 'guest' to have access to certian folders or
    files (on my secondary drive). How can I do this. I found some stuff on the
    internet but it says it can only be done if my pc has NTFS format. I have
    fat32 format. Any other solutions please?

    Switch to NTFS, or use a third party utility.
