    You can change the security permissions to block certain user accounts.

    But anyone with an administrator account can change the ownership or these folders.

    You may be able to encrypt them. I haven't really been in a predicament where I've used encyption, but maybe it will make the files unique to your own account.

    I'm feeling a bit lazy today, so I found someone else who has posted the instructions to do this. Hopefully they are correct. :) This was posted over at Expert's Exchange.
