How can I password protect a file or folder my way?

Hi All,

I have a small network (8 computers) and I want to be able share folders (or files) on my computer. I want to password protect these folders or files and allow people to access them only if I have given them the password.

In a perfect world I would like to make it as simple as right clicking on the item, enable share, and then set password. I'm not worried about hidding it or encrypting it.

Does anyone know of such a program?

Thanks,
Bill

I have a small programme called Password Generator v2.1, I got it from ZDNet's web site, try there, they have quite a selection, and one could well suit you.
