    Password protecting a folder?

    The situation is that I would like one user on my network to have access to a file or folder but not anyone else. There are three systems on the network all running xp pro and connected through a dlink wireless router. 2 of the systems are hardwired and the other is wireless. Any help is appreciated. I disabled simple sharing and tried to add permissions for that user but I was unable to point the permissions to that computer throgh that process. Thanks again.

    Did you try doing it in safe mode? If this page doesn't help say something and I'll try to look some more.
