    Is there a way to password folders in WindowsXP pro?
    I know i can set the permissions to allow only me, but if i leave the computer someone can get on and see. (without using some hard to understand encrypter)

    thanks,
    moo

    AFAIK you cannot password protect individual folders, only set permissions on them as you say

    Most of the time, everything in documents and settings\USER can only be accessed by the user itself. You can dump everything there ... or set permissions on another folder.
