Hide private folder from search

Right now I have a folder that is only accessible by me on my Windows 2003 terminal server setup. Nobody else can access the files, however if they do a search (say for .doc) the files in that folder appear. They cannot open them, but they can read the names of the files in the folder. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Right-click the file/folder, choose properties, security, advanced.
From the Permissions tab, highlight the user/group you want to assign permissions to (or add them if they're not there).  Then click Edit.  You'll want to deny the Traverse and List Folder permissions, remembering to check to box to push the permission change to all sub containers...
