    Well if you're using 2K/XP, then simply right-click on the folder, choose properties and look for the "encrypt folder" option.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Try using the EncryptFile and DecryptFile functions -- they work for directories, too.
