How can I make it so only I can access my folder?

A few days ago I saw my sister snooping around my pictures from her user profile, AND IT RUSTLED MY JIMMIES. I don't want to encrypt the folder or anything just make it so it can't be accessed from outside my user profile. How do I do this?

    If you have the admin user account, then set up a password for your account, then follow the below steps:

    1) Select the folder which you don't want to share with anybody else

    2) in win 7, below the address bar, click the option 'share with' and from that, select 'nobody' followed by clicking the option 'Stop sharing'

    You have done it!!!!!!!!!!!
