Windows 7: Turn off Sharing Music in WMP 12

Turn off Sharing Music in WMP 12

Hello all
I'm not sure I'll ever get used to Windows 7 Libraries
I'm the admin on my system. My husband is a standard user. He only does email or internet. But all my music is also in his log-in account. It went there automatically. He doesn't use music etc... but if I try to delete music from his account it also deletes it from my account. I chose the share with nobody but that didn't help. Does he also have to pick the share with nobody?

So you want to block access to your User Folder so nobody can have access to your files/music.

Let's try this,

First Go to My Computer:

Double Click on the C: Drive and find the folder Users

Double Click on Users folder, then Find your account folder Name

Right Click on your account name folder and select properties

A new window will pop up and tab over to the Sharing tab and click on the button Share

A new window will pop up and select the user you want to change. Click on the permission level and select remove. Once done click the share button.
