I've had some bad experiences with Ubuntu so I want to setup my saving account in Windows 7. I was looking at account policy and security and such and what I want to do is setup an account where the content of the home folder is only accessible by that user only (once logged in.) Any help on how to set that up? I figured out folder encryption but I'm not sure how to setup security policy so that folder is only accessible by that account once it's logged in.

Yeah but any account can pretty much navigate to /Users/[account] and access all the files.

No. not ANY account.  Only those with admin privileges.  Even with admin privileges no one else can read the file if is is encrypted by the account holder.

You're right, I didn't realize my default account was admin. Now, this option is really good enough for me, but if I put in my admin password and get in there once, that permission will be added to my user account. How can I remove this later?

If it is a limited account, and you use your admin password one-time, it will remain a limited account. Next time you need admin permission, it will ask for it.

You can switch permanent permissions on an account, i.e. limited or admin, at any time.
