Windows 7: Standard User Account Restrictions

Standard User Account Restrictions

I want to stop my son from accessing 'my docs'. He has a basic account and I am administrator. How do I do this?

You moved your documents outside of your user directory (C:\Users\[username])? Otherwise they would have been protected...unless you altered the permissions of the system.

Figured it out thanks! I just went to Users - [username] - properties - security - alter permissions of [user]
Man pretty easy I couldn't get it to work at first because initially I just checked the boxes, instead of editing them.

Thanks for fast reply!
