    There are several 3rd party proggies to do just that, unfortunatly they are not free...at least I don't recall any right off the bat.... here is one with a 30 day trial..Password Protect 2.2 ... OR Folder Lock
    Another alternative is to encrypt you files, then brother (or who ever) can't view them.. This method is FREE..such as Crypt Mage and several opther listed HERE
    I'm SURE there are some freeware password protection proggies but I'm just not aware of them
