Protect your files by password protecting your folders in Windows XP.

Windows XP users can hide sensitive documents from prying eyes by password protecting folders. Password protection is available through the Windows XP operating system for both standard and ZIP folders. For standard folders, your account password, if you use one, is automatically assigned to the password-protected folder. You are prompted to create an account password if you don't have one. ZIP folders can have a password independent of the account password.
