Password for folders

  irwind 16:08 28 Sep 2006

Is there any way I can secure specific folders in the computer with a password? I have a few confidential files that need to be protected. So far I have been using switching between screens but it is daunting when more than one of us have to use the computer in turns. any suggestions?
