How do I make a folder in the root of a shared network drive inaccessible over the network but accessible to that computer?

I have a 1TB secondary drive in my desktop computer that I have the root of shared over my local network. Inside are 5 folders, all but one of I want to be accessible over the network (one is a backup folder I don't want accessible to other network computers). Before I reinstalled my OS I had figured some way of changing the permissions so that if I was on the desktop itself I could get into the backup folder, but if I was on any other computer on the network I could see the shared drive and modify any folder but the backup one. I just recently reinstalled Windows Vista (Went from 32 bit to 64 bit) and now I can’t remember how I had set the permissions. [more inside]

Why can't I connect to my neighbor's open wireless network?

My downstairs neighbor has given me permission to connect to her open wireless network. The network looks unsecured, doesn't ask for a password, just tells me "unable to connect," except once when it seemed to connect but told me I had a weak or limited connection. The signal is strong.

Yes, I've asked the company. Officially, it's impossible.

A question for IT and telecoms boffins: Help me understand voicemail. Specifically, what would need to go wrong with a mobile phone company's voicemail server for it to randomly connect customers to the mailboxes of complete strangers? Is it more likely to be an isolated technical glitch, a systemic network security problem, intentional foul play, or something else?

Is my hard drive opaque on a public network?

Wi-Fi security. How much of the contents of my a) iPhone or b) iBook can be "seen" if I'm on a public network? Particularly concerning the latter, I've never been clear whether, in logging on to network X--be it a free municipal net or my employer's "guest net"--I'm simply an inscrutable blip on a network or I'm making my hard drive an open book to anyone who cares to peek. Any insight would be appreciated.

How to "lock down" Windows on a home PC

I've been wondering if it is possible to apply the same solution to the never-ending problem of Windows corruption (and the resulting degraded performance) that data centers use. As I understand it, Windows is booted over the network, so what happens to the local hard drive does not matter. Is there a way of doing the same thing to a home PC? Can you make a hard drive "read-only" after putting a bootable Windows image on it, and then use a seperate hard drive for data storage? I really detest the solution that MS sponsors (virus protection/firewall software) because it is just another thing that you have to buy which supports it's business partners. Any other ideas?

How do I network my way into a job?

I've been looking for work for a little while, and have just come across position which would be ideal for me. It's an IT team leader role with an Engineering firm here in Brisbane (Australia), and I've applied for the role in the normal fashion (website / phone follow-up). However, general advice seems to be that one has better luck networking one's way into a role, and in this instance I have the option to do so -- my father is a respected engineer, and (although they're not close mates) has known the COO, MD, and Chairman of the board for years, and has previously worked with them. The organisation doesn't have a CIO, so there's a good chance the IT function reports to the COO. So, how could I use this information to my advantage? Or is the link too tenuous, and I should simply rely on the standard application process?
