Windows 7: any way to restrict the indexing of a drive per user

any way to restrict the indexing of a drive per user

Is there any way to restrict the indexing of a drive per user (I have two drives), so only my user account (admin) can search within a specific drive? I know I can restrict the access to a drive but that's not what I want to do, just disable the index for a user so he can only have indexed the OS drive but not other drive.

Also is there any way to hide the indexing options in control panel to regular users? I know I can hide them from the group policies but that also hides them from my admin account. It's so weird that any user can change the index options o.0
