File sharing - this can't be right?

    I have set-up a Mac/PC file share over the home network. I have made two folders available for share.

    When I go to the PC I can see the Mac fine, but when I click on it it asks for my password which logs me in and allows me to see every single file on my Mac.

    Have I done this wrong and why can I connect to my Mac this way when I only have 'file sharing' and 'allow no-one to log into this computer' checked.

    Ok sorry to post again but this seems to be only happening on Windows 7.

    If I use other PC's with Vista the shares appear correctly. On Windows 7 I can see every folder on my Mac - again that shouldn't be happening right?
