1.  I am using win2k.
2.  Serveral other users log on to the same computer that I do.
3.  I am using a program that I do not want other people to have access to.
4.  We all have "Standard User Accounts".

Is there a way to prevent this?

Find the program directory (or just the executable file) and right-click it/choose properties and from the security tab, remove all rights except your account.  If you are not part of the Administrators group, you can explicitly deny Administrators as well).
This is presuming you are using NTFS for your file system...

yep, yep, that'll do it, just don't have any problems with your login if you deny all others
