As Amazing Andrew said about how to make a secret folder http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/121687/create-a-secret-folder/

Are they hidden from keyloggers, can keyloggers find them in windows xp?

A keylogger works in a different way, It records keystrokes. You can in theory beat a keylogger by using the on screen keyboard.

Ok.

But can Virues\Spyware look at them and read the information?

That depends on what virus or spyware it is, for example if it is spyware designed to find that sort of folder then it will have the ability to locate the folder. If someone gained entry to the system and didn't know about the method to find the folder then there is a slight chance that the information will be safe from a quick look by the person.
