On way i make sure that nobody can find the files that i have is to hide them in a folder that is deep inside other folders. For example goto Program Files->Common Files->Microsoft Shared or something along those lines.

that only works if you take the time to clear down things like the recent documents folder and... if the files are m$ish (word, excel etc) then you can open recently used docs from the programs themselves.
The amount of effort should be proportionate to the sensitivity of the data.
If the the other users are clueless, then just rename the file extension to *.zip or *.bmp etc, thats quick, and pretty obscure to most window$ users.

Intruder there are two ways u can do that firstly is via softwares the best i recommand is Magic Folder totally hide ur holder no one in the entire world can find . Its really a magic
u can get that while searching on Google.
Second software is Folder guard in this way the user can c ur folder but he or she cann't open it not even from DOS until they know the passwords.
And the third way the coolest, which is not a software is ASCII code yeah u can protect ur folder by ASCII code just visit the following link for that
check out the site asia.cnet.com/downloads/pc/swlist
there are some good password tools in there for folders have fun.

If you wanna be secure, why not encrypt the files with PGP, zip them (with password protection), and then encrypt the zip file? That way they have to crack two different PGP passwords as well as a zip password.
