Is there any way by which I can make the contents of a folder on my desktop require a password to open it but not for copying any file to it.

Any user should be able to copy any file to that folder but no one should be able to open it unless a correct password is entered.
Is it possible from within Windows XP? Or would I need a special software?

you will need some software to do this. Windows XP can only limit access to folders.
