    Anyone know how to password folders so that it prompts me to type in a password? or know of a program that does so?

    I don't know, but I do know that you need to have you hard drive formatted as NTFS to be able to what you are talking about (or I'm pretty sure I know ;))

    If you look up NTFS in Help and Support it should tell you, I read up on it once, but I dont have that good of a memory!!!

    Remember when ever you have a problem the first place you should look is help!! You won't regret it! Everyone should do this, they will learn alot and get their problems fixed faster!!

    Take it from the XP-erienced!
