    If he's 13, I'm sure he's seen lots of porn!

  5. What operating system? In Win XP Pro you can encrypt a compressed folder and
    require a password with ease. Start->Help and Support->search for folder +
    password.

    In Win 9x you can make a folder "hidden" so people who don't have their view
    options set to show things like system files and hidden folders won't see
    it.

    In both systems you can run a third party zip program like WinZip to create
    password protected Zip files to hold your porn.

    Obviously you don't feel there is any harm in it ... or you wouldn't
    have a folder full of it. ;-)

    identify for anyone without permission from Sooper Spy HQ>
    And there *is* a lot of logic in using a method where you unzip before
    looking at your porn.

    Put it in a compressed folder & change the .zip extension of
    the folder to something else to make it look like a file.
    Just don't forget what your 'file name' is or your brother
    will be old enough to vote before you can work out which
    'file/folder' it is.

    people could you stop telling this guy off for having a folder full of porn. who cares. all this guy asked for was how to password protect a folder. does it really matter what he wants to protect. if he said it was to protect confidential business files you would probably answer differently
