Default Locking Folders?

Who here knows a good program that could lock the My Documents folder and the only way to open it is to use a password.

Anyone?

Grimey, this sort of question should go in the software forum. Nevertheless since i'm here, i'll just say that if you are using an NT based OS i.e W2K or XP, AND as long as your HDD is formatted NTFS, there is a security feature built into NTFS that will lock that down folder so unauthorized users cannot read that folder.
