"FAT32 offers no security, unlike NTFS, which allows you to set permissions. If your HD gets into the wrong hands, that person will be able to access your data."

It never even occurred to me to look for a program to sidestep this issue. I've been using VMware Fusion on my Mac to manage all my files in Windows. This seems much, much easier! Thanks!
