Default Password protect a folder in windows XP?

I have music and files in XP that I want to keep others out of and I don’t want to setup another user account is there any way that I can put a password on folders?
The people I am trying to keep out aren’t all that smart but do like to fu*k about with my work.

Anyone know about away to help?

You can create a password protected zip file though, and keep all your things in it.
