    um, what have you got to hide honey? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    actually, you have to create a new profile for yourself on windows and password protect that.

    each time you logon, logon as your profile and all ur data should be safe.

    loves u. (sorry, had to slip that one in <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; )

    Although, it is very easy to get into the other users desktops by going up levels and into other windows users when you go to open something. So its ok for basic security but not very safe from prying eyes...

    Just done a banging shit. Won't flush. You might have to push it down

    susie actually a program called "magic folders" might be able to help you. try www.download.com .. i cant remember anything about it, i did try to run it once, but it either infected me with CIH or coincided with my being infected (probably the latter) but i thought i wouldnt run it agian just to be on the safe side.

    chickadee --

    click on "my computer"
    then "control panel"
    then "users"
    then follow the instructions.

    it's pretty easy. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
