Hi there.

Is it possible to password protect a particular file/folder on a computer that multiple users have access to? That is, in WindowsXP and Vista. Thanks!

Personally, I use and recommend a third party application - TrueCrypt (http://www.truecrypt.org/).

Native Password support is not included in XP. You can create Password protected Compressed files, and create folders within them, and also use passwords on Office documents. You can easily use NTFS permissions to lock down users though, but it would require each person thier own unique user id on the machine...
