I have installed a Peer to Peer program, is there any to password protect this program so that I am the only on that can see or use it?

Thank You

I think there are a few bits of software that might do what you're asking, but I don't know of any off hand.

If you use different user accounts on that computer, you can use XPs permissions system to deny access to the programs folder to other accounts. If your account is password protected, that will restrict access to the program. It won't help if you leave the computer logged on.

Another alternative would be to use TrueCrypt or a similar piece of software to install the program to an encrypted are, which you can then unlock with a password.
