lock single file/folders
is it possible to put a password lock on single files/folders so that you are
asked to enter a password each time you want to acess it?

XP and Vista do not use passwords to protect resources. NT-based
operating systems use permissions instead.

Passwording of folders is not supported unless you zip them. When you do
(right click a folder, then "send to > compressed folder") and then open
the zip file, you will find an option under file>"add a password".
Otherwise, use third-party software. Google "password protect folders".
