    Is there away in WinXP to password protect a folder or a sub-directory of folders? Thanks.

    You could give this a go. It works in XP. Right click the setup.inf file & select 'Install'.

    Reboot, then right click / properties on a folder to see the security tab.

    I purchased a program called Password Manager XP. You can find it here:

    I think they have a free download that will work for a few weeks to demo the program. I liked it so much a bought it.
