Here's a few things to start -

*Make your drives NTFS
*Set a LONG and MIXED (letters, numbers, and symbols) administrator password
*Disable all services you are not using (Server service if you are not sharing files from this machine, workstation service if you are not using shared files from other systems).  If you're not sure, don't disable it - you might not be able to get back into windows.

If you have or can get, use a cable/DSL router.  They act as a firewill.  Or, if you have a second Windows 98 SE, Me, or 2000 system, use a second network card in it and enable internet connection sharing.  This will provide a private unreachable network for all other machines other than the second Win 98/Me/2k box.

Have you tried leew's suggestions? They seem the only valid possibility in your situation.

Is that what you wanted? It seems that it is. Is there more you require?
