Windows 7: Files Viewable by All Users

13 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
Files Viewable by All Users


I have a bunch of files and folders that i want hidden from the other users on my computer. I have one of two admin accounts, the rest are limited. I have set the correct permissions settings (Changing from Allow to Deny ) in C:\Users

Now, when a user makes a search from within the START menu, my files are listed. How can i take this off? The folder has been set to hidden, and i have unchecked "the Allow files in this folder to have contents indexed".

Thank You!
