Here's the idea: If you don't have a valid user name and password, you can access a shared folder only as a Guest. Password-protect the Guest account and you thwart unwanted access. Here's how—in six easy steps:
Log on as Administrator.
Go to Settings | Control Panel | User Accounts, and click on Guest Account to make sure it is turned on.
Go to Start | Run, type cmd, and hit Enter.
At the prompt, type Net user guest password and hit Enter.
Go back to User Accounts and click on the Guest account.
Note that you can now add a password (see the screen). Do so and reboot.
From now on, any attempt to log on to shared folders from the Guest account will require the Guest password for access—even if the Guest account is turned off!

Just enable the security tab and set the permissions for the folders. I also think that there's a folder encryption option but I'm not sure if the Home edition has that feature.
If the Security tab is not available and you cannot configure permissions for users and groups:
The file or folder that you want to apply permissions to is not on an NTFS file system drive. You can set permissions only on drives that are formatted to use the NTFS file system.
Simple file sharing is enabled. By default, simplified sharing is enabled in Windows XP unless you are on a domain. To work around this behavior, disable Simplified Sharing.
