Guest account and folder access

I have windows 7 and turned on the guest account for a lodger we have staying with us. I want to protect basically all my folders so that she really can only access the internet and use skype (which is why I am giving her the account).

How do I do this?

Thanks

A guest account is an account for users who don't have a permanent account on your computer or domain. It allows people to use your computer without having access to your personal files. People using the guest account can't install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password.
