make your account password protected

whide doing this you`ll be asked if you want to resctrict access to your personal data

NOTE : This will restrict only Documents and Settings Folder

NOTE : The other account must be limited so as to accomplish this

Note security tab only appears in normal mode with windows xp pro. Security tab only appears in windows xp home when computer is started in safe mode.
