How to give a temporary remote user limited access to network files

Last Modified: 2014-01-16
Environment is windows 2003 domain.

We have need for a temporary outside user to have access to only one set of our network folders. I have created a user ID for this user.

How can I prevent them from having access to anything else including areas that can normally be accessed by "Authenticated Users".

Or perhaps, how can I remove this user from "Authenticated Users"?
