Is there a way to password protect certain files? For example, I'd like to keep mildly sensitive items from work in the computer, say for instance in the "my documents" folder. Is there a way to password protect that folder so if someone uses my computer, they just can't waltz in there and look around? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Yes if you are using Windows XP (NTFS). Otherwise you would need a third party utility. Do a search on Google.

PGP is a great, free encryption program. It lets you choose the encryption strength, for your purposes the lowest setting will do, and even that is not from easy to crack. It goes up to 2048 bit encryption, and there is a $200,000 prize for the person that cracks that at the RSA Challenge.
