I think Hoggorm wanted to avoid ntfs permissions since anybody with admin rights/local access can reset them

Just install any folder locking program, then. There are tons available just googling for that. You're administrator on the machine so you can do so and that seems the simplest method as that will use a password only you know that others with admin access will not have access to.
