Does the built-in Windows 7 File Compression Utility have the capability of encryption the data as well as adding a password to it so that it's at least somewhat connected?

If you mean the "Send to a compressed folder" option on Windows 7, I do not know of any method of protecting the resulting ZIP file with password or encryption.

have a look here for alternate compression tools.

Personally, I use 7-zip.

I'm not sure why it's called 7-zip, but I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with Windows 7 :-)

Yeah, I knew about 7-zip, but am behind a firewall with a shlew of internet policy red tape.  No fun.  Thanks for your response.
