    usually for a question like this you would want to go to a windows forum...

    but here is the answer:
    if you have windows xp pro you can simply right-click and select encrypt...otherwise, you have to get a 3rd party program to allow you to do this.

    you can also click on properties and check whether you want it to be read-only, readwrite, ect.
