    I am looking for a free program that will let me pick a few files and folders to password protect. Specifically, I want to make the folders to where when you double-click on them, a password prompt pops up.

    Thanks,

    Wes

    Not the exact answer you're looking for, but close and slightly more secure - try the built-in EFS (Encrypted File System) in 2K and XP Pro. Not sure if it is available in XP home.
