Granting access to multiple user account in windows 7?

Found 28th Jan 2011
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.
