folder permissions on Win?

On OS X it's easy to set up a truly limited user account, but on Windows 
when I set an account to "Limited" I can still access just about every 
folder on the drive. As far as I can tell the only limitation on a 
"Limited" account is the inability to create other accounts, but since 
those accounts are not limited in any other way it's not much of a 
limitation at all.

This raises two questions:

1. How can I set up an account which prevents access to the Program 
Files directory?

2. Should I file a bug report with Microsoft to let them know that 
"limited" accounts are not really limited?

I wouldn't mind being wrong on this one if someone can point the way to 
creating an account which doesn't let the "limited" user destroy 
everything on my system.
