Password protecting in XP Professional:
Select the folder you wish to encrypt.
Right-click the folder and click Properties.
Click the Advanced button.
Check "Encrypt contents to secure data" option.
Click Apply and then OK.

Password protecting in XP Home:
Select the folder you wish to encrypt.
Right-click the folder and click Properties.
Click the Sharing tab.
Check the box next to "Make this folder private".
Click Apply and then OK.

I have seen some problem regarding 'Password Protecting' of Windows folders. That even if you enter exactly the same password, you will not be able to get into the folder. Just take note of it.
