Here are two solutions...

To use either the ''my documents'' folder or ''private folder'' options, you'll need separate user accounts. For the ''my documents'' method, only computer administrators will be able to access the files. (Although anyone with administrative privileges, including your wife, would have full access.) For complete security, use the ''private folder'' option I mentioned before, which allows only your user name access...no one else...even other administrators. You can also make the ''my documents'' folder private if you want...adding one more layer of protection.

To set up user accounts, go start->control panel->user accounts. from there it will guide you through creating or changing a user account, adding passwords, etc. While there, you may want to disable the ''guest'' account as it is often exploited by both guests and hackers. Also, if there is a user called ''ASP.NET,'' don't worry about it...it was created because you have Microsoft's .NET software installed, which is required for some of their services.
