I have windows 7 using bootcamp. I do not want windows to have access to my Mac files. How do I remove the Mac partitions from being accessed under Windows.

When you installed the Boot Camp drivers, it isntalled an Apple HFS driver to give Windows read only access to the Mac Partitions in your computer.  If you do not load that driver, your WIndows PC will not be able to read the MacOS partitions in your computer.


You should be able to remove the driver, or rename the driver file and your Windows environment won't be able to read the MacOS partitions.

Find AppleHFS.sys and AppleMNT.sys in Windows32 \ Driver folder
