How to password-protect files in XP

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Justin Dustin, Sep 22, 2003.

  1. Is there any inherent way to password-protect individual files in
    Windows XP home, other than password protecting an entire user
    account?
    I tried a freeware program that does this, but it made my computer act
    funny so I uninstalled it.
