P L E A S E H E L P!!!! Xp Passwords



Hello. I use Windows XP Pro. Is there any way to select a folder in XP and password protect it so that even you the admin would have to enter a password to access ut?

I use one account in XP and this account is shared by 2 people. I want to be the only one able to access a specific folder with my password so that the other person will see the folder but not be able to access it. I don't want to hide the contents, just password protect it.

How can I do this? I know Tweak XP does it but I have to use their program to open the folder all the time.

just out of curriosity why would you want to share accounts on XP they did a really good job of making it easy to use multiple accounts on the same box....


The other person uses most of my files anyway and I don't need another account to be set up.

What you said to do works if I am sharing something over the network or with another account in XP. I wanna only have 1 account and protect the folder, not share it!!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
