Default Re: folders in win xp

Is this for home use or part of a domain?

Hmmm, you could try setting up another account and just password yours/administrator account so only you have access to your files.

You could use DirLock (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Securit...dirLock.shtml). It doesn't prompt you for a password when you try to open the folder, but it doesn't let anybody in. After you install it, you just right click the folder and click "Lock/UnLock" and it will give an access denied error when someone tries to open it.

or if you have xp media centre/pro theres a security tab (needs to be activated in folder options) which lets you choose who can access a folder and what not
