Just a quick ?. Can you put passwords on folders on windows? Reason I ask is because my brothers kids are coming to spend the summer with me and my mom and I don't feel like making a user account for them and I don't want to them going threw my stuff so yeah lol.
From what I know, using compressed folders is one way. Right click on desktop or explorer-> select new compressed (zipped) folder. Select files you want to p-word protect. Right click and drag to the folder (left click will keep make copies of the file) In the folder you want to compress, go to File->Add a password. And thats it. Just remember your password. =) The files will be visible but no operation can be performed on them. To make a file invisible, just make another compressed folder within a compressed folder and encrypt it.
Are you using XP???? It litterally takes less than 30 seconds to add a new user in XP. If your using 98 (or lower) then, :google:.
beware that even if the files are password protected that they still can be deleted
