Apps for hiding folders and files

Hi,
Any good apps that can hide folders and files from Windows and all other apps (even when the "Show hidden files and folders options" is ticked) and/or password protect them? Thanks.

Well, my originally intention was to hide files from other users, but now encryption does sound like a valid option because I have alot of sensitive information on this computer. But the hdd that the information is on isn't NTFS formatted, so using XP's internal encrytion is out of the question (until I get off my lazy a$$ and format it). lol :D

Thanks all though for your suggestions, and thanks sboulema for the comment. :p
More programs that would do the job would be appreciated.

not true. pm8 can convert your hdd from fat32 to ntfs, without the need to format :)

and watch out using the ntfs encryption. once you format you will not be able to access the data because the encryption key will be gone and all data will be lost
