I need to set up permissions to disallow users from viewing groups/lists of users, but still have access to their personal profile. Admins of course will have access to everything.
 
Is it possible to achieve this, and if so how?

I may have misunderstood your request, but if I have it right, you should be able to achieve the effect your looking for by changing your global privileges under the security tab.

Click global privileges, then select:  Members, user groups and forums.  If you scroll down to the bottom, you can un-check "view member profiles" for whichever user groups you don't want to be able to view them.

If it's the user groups you want to hide, you can always create a new one and designate it as the default group for new members, and make that user group hidden.  Then under global privileges you can decide who can and can't view that user group.  Sorry I should have added that in my first response!

Hope this helps!

Did you try out superiorpyro's suggestion? If you follow his instuctions and then do a check using the SU feature you'll find that the only profile that a member can view is his/her own. As Admin you will, of course, see all profiles!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!
