Securing Folders

Recommended Posts

I have 3 folders that I don't want anyone messing with, in each of these 3 folders I have several types of files (pictures in different formats, word documents, videos in diferent formats, spreadsheets and presentations) I know that WinXP pro has an option to lock folders but the version I have on my comp is WinXP home, is there any software that I can purchase to keep my work folders safe? I want an option other than winrar whether free or paid, and one that actually locks the folder not just hide it
