Granting access to multiple user account in windows 7?

I want to create two administrator accounts (so that both can install softwares, etc) on the same win 7 pc but I dont want one of them to view another's folders and files.
For example, at the moment they could just go to C:\Users\ and choose a particular user's folder under harddrive and view all the files on desktop or in "my documents", etc. I dont want that. So how can you restrict administrator accounts?

I read somewhere that i could password protect a folder with truecrypt but password-locking a whole user's folder is prolly not recommended.

Have you tried to manually change the Folder security, by removing all the extra approved members and leaving just that users account.

but they could always give themselves ownership of folder since they are admins too???
