how to stop other user from accesing administor files

I am running windows 7. I am the administer user and there is one other user account on the computer. lets call the other user "user B". user B was logged on the other day and we were listening to pandora. I wanted to access one of my files so I tried accessing it while user B was logged on. When I did it asked for my password to gain access. I entered it and accessed the file. Now user B has access to all of my files under my documents.

How can I change it back to were no other user but me can access my files. I have been unable to figure this out. Thanks for the help.

Both users need to log off.

That did not do it. I can still open my files (I am administrator) when logging in as user B and don't need a password

Assuming that the password is simply cached, you should change your password as Administrator.

Also, open a command prompt (cmd) and type in the following:
rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr
then see if your User files are showing in the list. If so, you can delete the cached password from there.

If you chose to permanently gain access/took ownership of all of those files, the solution is a bit more complex and will require editing the security properties for the folders in question.
