question about creating a new user account

hi guys i have a question about creating a new user

i created a new user account on my sony VAIO notebook "windows 7" for friends or family who wants to use my laptop. i opened up the "my computer" and i see the files that i have on my own account.. i was wondering if there was a way to create a new user account and not have my files in the account... is this possible ?? i dont want to create a guest account as it cant use some programs that are installed..

if its not possible to have a second new C drive with none of my files.. i guess my last option is to open up a guest account

thank you guys for your time !!
have a wonderful holiday and a new year !!

If you created a normal user account and not an administrative user account, you should be able to log into that new account and not have access to those files.

If you are seeing something you do not want, maybe you could restrict access to certain folders so other normal users could not see that folder.
