I am the only user on my computer, however I have roommates. I was wondering
if there was a way to password protect a certain folder on my computer. I
already have a log on password to my computer, but I want additional
security. Thank you!
If you are the only user of your computer then the login password should be sufficient since no one else is supposedly to use your computer. None of the Windows operating systems protect by password on folders. The NT versions use permissions which is controlled access by your login password.
If you want to add more passwording to your login and file access then get WinZip or another archiving tool to use passwords. You could also use TrueCrypt.
So if you have roommates and you don't think your login password is sufficient security, just what is going to prevent those roommates from getting past your obviously too-week login credentials to then install a keylogger to get at the passwords you enter for the zip files or TrueCrypt containers?
