Question Password Protect my shared folders over network!!

I was wondering how can I password protect my shared files and folders on my network so that no one can access them but me...
I used to deselect the "Use Simple file sharing" and, if im not mistaken, it used to ask for a password...
My friend got his laptop to my place yesterday and connected to my network wirelessly...and I went to see if I can access the files...and to my surprise, it didnt ask for a password or anything!!

Any ideas???
