Errrrm...it is only for txt. files but if the info is that secret converting the files will be a doddle.

click here

You can also use Winzip and the password feature in it.

click here

click here most you have to pay for but there are some good utilities here.

Remember that all password protections are fairly easy to crack by someone that is well up on computers. ;-))

If your using XP you can protect Zipped files already cant you ?

Yes.

you can, as PªūĽ ™ and Powerless have said, password-protect a compressed (zipped) folder.

1. Double-click the compressed folder.

2. On the File menu, click 'Add a Password'

3. Type a password.

4. Type the password again in the 'confirm password' box.

The folder is now protected, but remember that when you decompress the folder the files are no longer protected. Passwords are case-sensitive.

Just what I was looking for.

If it's just text files you want to protect, copy them into a Word file and it's a simple matter to put a password on it.
