Limiting user accounts

I have only one computer in my home, but many people use it.

How do i create multiple accounts and set limitations to certain programs and folders?

I know how to make an account, but for example, i dont want my kids to access firefox.exe (C:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe)
