Re: Passwording Documents
That's one way. Very creative, indeed. What I would do is change the attribute of the folder to hidden and hide it in a directory no one else knows about. Do this if no one in your family is computer savvy to know how to look for it. Make sure you check the "Do not display hidden files or folders" in the Folder Options window. This isn't really secure though because someone who knows what they're doing can always uncheck that option and do a search for it.
