Windows 7: Guest account

With the guest account on windows seven, once you enter your password to access something on a main account is there a way to make the guest account forget it?

I was adding my music library to WMP and I had to enter my password but then I could browse all my other files and folders, which I don't want it to be able to do.

Mkr10001,

I believe that if you log off, it will then forget the password that you used to access the main account.
the rules say that you only have to enter the main acct password once and during that session, it should stay ok.

Will WMP still be able to access the files do you know?

Unless the files were moved to where the guest account has access permission, then no.
