Hi there,

You can remove the entries which mount Windows 7 partition from /etc/fstab.

Remember that somebody in /etc/sudoers who has access to mount command can still mount these partitions. They just have to scan the disk using

Code:
 fdisk -l
Which will output all the partitions on that disk and then using mount command they can mount the Windows 7 (ntfs partitions).

You could additionally remove the libntfs3g package, or ever compile your own kernel without ntfs support.

I am sorry, but i am new to linux and a intermediate level computer user. Please tell me what those instructions mean. I tried "gksu pysdm". That showed some kind of window where i was supposed to uncheck volume visible. But all options on that window are disabled. Please help.
