Hi fahimabid,
It really is dependent upon your situation.
What operating system?
Are you using FAT/32 or NTFS?
For most of the new Windows OS's - and using NTFS, you can eliminate access by locating the control.exe file (in %systemroot%(usually winnt or windows)\system32) and right-click it, choose properties and explicitly deny access to the accounts you want to prevent using it.
