    Assuming you have MS XP or anything older, you can't unless you zip it (I don't know about Vista). There are a number of additional software out there that will do it for you, however (Folder Lock is a free one).

    Is this a personal or work computer? If it is setup on the network and you have permissions you would typically right-click on the folder you are trying to give permissions for and select "Properties." From here click on the "Security" tab. You will then add a user in and check off whatever you want to give them rights to. If this is grayed out or not available to you and you are in-deed at work then you probably do not have rights to giving rights. ;)
