My question is this:

Is there any way that i can make files on windows xp be protected by a password? Is there any programs that will allow me to do this?

I have files i want to keep private.

Let me guess... it's porn isn't it?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Well, I don't have a clue if there are, but I'm assuming you can download a program for something like that.

Holy fuck.

My brother watches that show with that kid in your avatar, TS.

Anyway, it depends on what you are protecting. If it's pr0n, protect it. If you want to have passwords on it just for the sake of having passwords, don't do it.

EDIT: Yep, it's pr0n. Just make it .rar file and put a password on that.

You could always zip up the folder into a .rar with winrar, and put a password on that.

best porn hiding method right here.

personally though i just have a folder right on my desktop labeled porn.

here's what you can do: if you're the only person who uses the computer, just set a password to log in and set a password to get in from your screensaver.

if it's a shared computer, you're pretty much screwed unless you're the administer. you can keep your files hidden from other users if you keep it out of the shared folders, but the Admin can see pretty much everything saved on the hard disk.

oh, here we go. just use a flash drive.

I hide mine in different USB's. Hiding it on the computer is just too much of a risk I think.

what's the point of hiding porn? unless you have super strict parents or younger kids around you.

if your parents are decent with computers or know someone who's decent with computers, and have a keylog, they'll find your pron unless you put it on flash drives. I live with my older bro and am sure he wouldn't use my computer because his is superior to mine (I use his retired one...it's over 3 years old), but if I suspected he was using my computer I could find out.

Yawn...
Download this thing called Folder Lock..
It encrypts your pron and hides it..
Pretty good system.

I use it myself..
Now go forth and spread the word of it

save it where your internet cookies are stored. If you are lucky you might also encounter with some pr0n there that you might have buffered online.
