Well, changing the sharing or security options may end up with a lock on the icon. And it should mean that it's only accessible just by you.
Playing with permissions may end up with a mess. That said, try this:
right click on the folder>properties>security tab>Edit>click Add
At the next window at the bottom enter in the text field "users" without quotes>click checknames>ok keep clicking ok until the explorer window shows.
Don't have the link (sorry) but it should work.
