Is there anyway through windows to password protect a certain folder(s) ? Or do I have to get a 3rd party software, if so which one is good ? I have Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hey there manu08, I have not seen any option in XP where you can actually password protect a file, using 3rd party software is the only option.

I know a really really good piece of software that you might find interesting:

Pc Security

This program works great you can lock certain files on your computer (Meaning everything.... :blink: ) And its got tones of options, other than folder locking.

Try it out, I am sure you will really really enjoy using it.

Let me know what you think.... Cool :whistling:

This is not quite the software I am looking for. In this the folder is either locked or unlocked. I want a software that prompts to enter the password when I try to open the certain folder. Any ideas what software might be providing that ?
