Protect your folders in XP

By pretty.elladon
Do you need extra security for your computer especially if there other people who use it? There are two ways. First, you can have a log-in password for your account and folders. To do this, you have to right click on the folder you choose to protect and click on Properties. Click on Sharing tab and select to make the folder private. Then click apply. A box will prompt you make a password, if you don’t have one available. You will need this so you and only you can access your stuff. If the folder is a zipped one, you can just select the folder, then click on “add a password” then type your password, and confirm it. Now, your folders can be seen but it is only you who can access them.
