I edited this whole post. When I am logged into another user account, I noticed that I can navigate to my main admin account's desktop. Is it possible to make it ask for a password in order to gain access? I do not want to block it completely as I like dragging files from one account to the next, but I only want myself to do so and not another user on their account. So an admin password prompt to make the change would be great. Is that option offered?

try this. googled in 2 seconds

1. Go to Start > run > type "diskpart".
A DOS window will appear with following discription.
2. Then type "list volume"
The result will look like :------
Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
--------------- --- -------- ---- ------ ---- ------ ----

Volume 0 F CD-ROM
Volume 1 C Window_XP NTFS Partition 7000MB Healthy System
Volume 2 D Softwares NTFS Partition 8000MB Healthy
Volume 3 E Songs NTFS Partition 8000MB Healthy

3. Suppose u wanna hide drive E then type "select volume 3". Then a
message will appear in same winwods { Volume 3 is the selected

4. Now type "remove letter E". Now a message will come { Diskpart
Removed the Drive letter }
sometime it requires the reboot the computer. Diskpart will remove the
letter. Windows XP is not having capabilty to identify the unkown

Your Data is safe now from all unauthorised users. To access the
content of hidden Drive repeat the process mentioned above. But in
4th step replace " remove" to "assign" i mean type "assign letter E

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
