Windows folder acccess

Hi,
      I need to restrict access (Read/Write/Execute) for users and I was wondering what is the best way to approach this.....I only want the user to have read/write/execute access to one directory in C:\ and the rest is just read/execute.  Should I first go to C:\ and ensure only read/execute permissions are checked for this user, then go to the folder that needs to have full access (C:\test)
and check the read/write/execute boxes?

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks

Is this just for one computer or many?

In group policy there are plenty of options for locking down C: Drive

On the Root Level C:\
set the appropriate rights you want
Now go the the folder C:\test .. which that user needs full access to ..
On the security dialogue.. go to advanced.. and Uncheck" Inherit from parent folder" ..
Now set "full control" to that user on this folder..

cheers
