    Thanks, hadn't seen this before. It might satisfy several requests we've seen here for passworded folders. (y)

    Got my interest also ... Played with it a bit ...
    But now I'm curious if it can be placed somewhere else besides in plain view on my Desktop.

    Was also a little curious about M$ "spyware" .. since it needed WGA

    All of the Microsoft optional software now requires WGA to download. I think there's enough people keeping them somewhat honest, I'm not too worried about them spying. :D

    Wasn't thinking of WGA that way, because ...
    I Haven't installed the WGA notification update .. because I see no sense in it ....
    Was thinking it may cause problems installing the Private folder... or install something else ... But It didn't.

    It did un-install cleanly ...
    May try it again later, to see if I can put it somewhere else besides in Plain View.
