    Set your default registered usergroup to have no permission to these forums.
    Then create a new usergroup, based on this default usergroup, based on this default usergroup permissions, and then modify it per forum it should get access to.

    Manually you can update their account, or use the promotion system to auto update it. has some more information about usergroups, forum permissions, and the promotion system.
