How to password protect a folder via vb script?

Hello Experts,
I need to know the steps/process to password protect a folder and without entering the password no one should be able to access the file.
The reason for asking via scripting is we do not have WinZip or WinRAR installed on our desktops. I have few confidential documents/files in different formats like docx, xlsx, .pdf, images etc. I have put all the files in a folder but unable to password protect it.
Can any of you please help me without taking the help of any 3rd party app or downloads?
Many thanks in advance.
