    Hi All,

    Just a quick question can anyone recommend any good file security programmes which i could use. All i wish to do it lock certian folders so they cant be accessed or viewed as they contain senstive data, is thier any programmes out thier which would be suitable.

    Also is thier a simple programme or software which will lock the computer while im away from the keys, Ie: where u just need to enter a password before u take control of the desktop again.

    Any help would be apprieciated.

    Many Thx :)

    If you disable "simple file sharing" you can change the access rights of a folder right from Xp itself...

    FolderShield is the business mate

    I use a little app called FolderShield. Folder's you add to it literally disappear; can't locate from file searching, dos or anything. It's well under 1 Mb aswell.

    Get it from

    You can make it password protected, or simply setup a hotkey combination to reveal/hide your "sensitive" folders,
    (from your girlfriend!) *grins*

    Hope this is useful to some of you. ENJOY!!!!
