I used my admin control pannel to lock regions I want hidden, but when I browse these areas, I can still see them. Perhaps I need to password protect them?

Locking a forum doesn't hide it from view. It just prevents posting.

If you don't want people to see a section, set the registered users group forum permissions to no access.
