How do you - using Windows 2000 - require a password befor..

Is there anyway that (using Windows) 2000 you can require
a password for someone to open a folder on your PC? This
assumes that it is a home PC and not a network or business
PC.

    No, there is not a built in way to prompt for a password as in Windows 98. W2K
    and XP provide security to access folders and files by creating user accounts
    and ntfs file permissions [via folder proerties/security] that can restrict
    which users on the operating system can access those folders/files and to what
    degree such as list, read, execute, write, modify, and change permissions. Keep
    in mind however that ANY administrator on the computer can access files even if
    they do not have permissions to the files as an administrator can always grant
    themselves permissions. See the link below and the parts for XP Pro are very
    similar to Windows 2000. --- Steve
