Default Is there a way to Password Protect Individual Folders on Win XP?

Or might there be a program that will do that? I dont like people looking at my files. I have important information like passwords and emails, and chat logs, etc.

There is a program... FolderLock 5.2.4. But I think it costs money... www.newsoftwares.net/folderlock
It costs about approx.US$40 if my calculations are correct.

Quote from main page of it's site:
Folder Lock is a fast file-security program that can password-protect, lock, hide and encrypt any number of files, folders, drives, pictures and documents in seconds. Protected files are hidden, undeletable, inaccessible and highly secure. It hides files from kids, friends and co-workers, safeguards them from viruses, trojans, worms and spyware, and even protects them from networked PCs, cable users and hackers. Files can also be protected on USB Flash Drives, Memory Sticks, CD-RW, floppies and notebooks. Protection works even if files are taken from one PC to another on a removable disk, without the need to install any software. It locks files in Windows, DOS and even Safe Modes. Additional Options include Stealth Mode, Hacker Attempt Monitoring, Shred files, AutoLock, Auto Shutdown PC, Lock your PC, Erase PC tracks, 256-bit Blowfish Encryption and Context Menu in Explorer. Works on Windows 2003/XP/2000/NT/Me/98 and all kinds of disk types like FAT16, FAT32, NTFS. Folder Lock is the most downloaded file-security program in the market today.

Well, I beleive that you can choose an option under useaccounts to hide all use data on the account that your on. And then just password protect your account. And you should be iight.

I think that you can use zip folders and they ask you to apply passwords if you want.

If that were the case you'd think he'd put it on a cd then erase the evidence.
