~Right click on the Folder you want to secure
~Go to 'Sent To"
~Click on "Compressed (zipped) Folder"
~Doubleclick on the newly created zip file
* Right click anywhere on the white space and click "Add a Password..."

we use win RAR
although it asked me to set a default password, it did not ask for it on opening it subsequently.
what program do you use?
