Preferred Solution: Password protect individual files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a shortcut to my HOSTS file on my desktop for ease of access because I edit it regularly.

However, little mischievous people may go into this if I am not on my computer and be a pain. Therefore, I want a way of protecting it from opening up in it's main application.

I don't really need it to be sophisticated, it is not to prevent hackers etc, it is merely to stop people having instant access to it from my desktop.

I doubt there is any built-in feature of windows, therefore what third-party applications can do this?

A:Password protect individual files

just create your own account and keep them in your documents folder. nobody will have access as long as they do not have admin privileges. or keep them on a flash drive. I would strongly urge you not to password protect individual files because you could forget the password and lose access to the files. this forum is full of locked threads because of users wanting help with forgotten passwords when they were trying to protect files.

Is there a faster way to password-protect folders than the ones I already know, such as AxCrypt or putting in a zip with 7Zip? I have a lot of huge files and it would take too long.

I do NOT need powerful encryption for these particular files. No hacker is ever going to get them; it's only to keep out my roommates who use my account on my computer. For various reasons setting up separate accounts is not an option.

I"m wondering if there's some way that's not as secure as AxCrypt because that's overkill for me but would still add a password and do it quicker.

A:Faster way to password-protect individual files/folders

I have installed software that can encrypt/ decrypt individual files/ folders or multiple files/ folders. It's pretty easy to use via drag/ drop folders/ files that you want to encrypt (accepts multiples) or select via right click context menu.

Right click a file/ folder to encrypt/ decryptDrag 'n' Drop multiples to encrypt/ decryptEncryted files have .pcr extensionIf you use the main program window to decrypt files or multiple files it totally and permanently removes encryption and restores the default file extension.

If you decrypt via click and open - you are asked for a password to open the file and it remains encrypted when you close the file.

Hi, I have a quick question. My boss just set up a new office, there are 3 computers there on a network, 2 running Vista, 1 running XP. The office next to ours has a T3 connection and my boss purchases his internet connection through them because its cheaper than the cable connection. However, he is worried that they have too much access to our systems. All of our shared files are in the Public Folder, which is something I have grown to hate in Vista.

A:password protect picture files?

Hi mgrady2681, and welcome to TSG.

If you are the only one using the computer, why not just create a password protected user account and make sure that the admin account has a password and any guest account is disabled? Make sure that the computer is set to require a password when waking up from hibernation or sleep mode. If there is a possibility she may snoop while you step away from the computer, make sure to lock the computer when stepping away.

Keep the camera in a locked drawer to which only you have the key. If the camera needs to be used by other people, let every user have their own memory card to use with the camera. Keep your memory card locked away when you are not using it. Make sure that you do not use any of the camera's built in memory to store pictures.

Hi Everyone, I recently downloaded off the internet some files (pictures in this case) which I want to password protect. I am running Office 2000 Pro on Windows XP Pro operating system. Password protecting a Word or Excel file is straightforward following the correct menus from the Save As option. I could not find anything similar for eg. picture files! Encryption I do not believe accomplishes the same security. Basically I do not want other people who have access to and use my computer, to be able to open these files without my explicit permission i.e. password protection. I suppose I could embed the pictures in a Word file or an Excel file and password protect them but this seems rather round about. It seems odd that for example Windows Explorer apparently does not provide for password protection for arbitrary files. Also, is there a procedure for password protecting a directory instead of having to individually password protect every file in the directory?

Any idea on how to do the following?
I have a Windows7 Professional 64bit PC on a network. I have some simple back-up software installed that will run scheduled backups, and it will also backup shared files on the network (network contains XP and Win7 PC's). All i want to do is have each computer on the network share the My Documents folder, but also have the folder (or PC) password protected on the network. I only want the backup PC to have access to the shared folders. This way, employees won't have to do anything but use the My Documents folder and their data will be backed-up daily and private to others on the network.

This sounds so simple, but i've ran into a bunch of problems. Actually, I was able to get the XP PC's to work by creating a password on the guest account and keeping the account turned off. It works great. I get a prompt for a username and password from any PC i try to connect to it from. But Windows 7 PC's are not giving me the Username and password promt. So when i set the network options to password protect, it just tells me i do not have permission or whatever. I know using a server role is the better/real way to do something like this. But just for spits n giggles, can this be done?

Hi, this is my first post here. We got a new computer a few months ago, one with Windows XP. My son, who has his own laptop, set me up as the Administrator. My husband, who thinks he knows a lot about computers,but DOES NOT, has been entering the Temporary Internet file, and Cookie file, and deleting things without I imagine, even completely understanding what he is doing. The other night, he deleted some things while my 16 year old daughter was in the room, and she tried to get him to stop because she said , although she couldn't see the whole thing, a box popped up that said removing this might be harmful to the computer. My husband still removed it, telling her he "Knew what he was doing." The next day, I had numerous problems with the computer, including an inability to get a dial up connection, once I did get one, I could not get a lot of our pages to open, and several other things. My son ran Ad Aware, Spybot, and Clean Up, in case we had gotten something on the computer, but it didn't help, and he had to do a Systems Restore. My daughter then told us that my husband had been removing things from the computer. My son said to check here, and see if there was anyway I could add those files to the ones that only the Administrator could tinker with. A friend of his online last night said for me to just drag those items into my Administrator files, but my son was not sure if this would work, and doesn't want us to screw around with the files if it wasn't ...

A:Can I password protect the Temporary Internet files and the Cookie file?

My, you do seem to be having problems. The answer to your question is that you can only protect folders that are in your user profile. Folders such as Internet Temporary Files and Cookies are common folders and therefore accessible to anyone. However, deleting files from these folders is unlikely to cause the problems you describe. I routinely clear out my temp files and cookies. It just means that for those websites where, for example, passwords are needed, you will have to re-enter them rather than it being done automatically, but it wouldn't stop access to sites. It's more likely that system or program files are being altered or deleted. If your husband is a restricted user, he shouldn't be able to alter these. If you've got problems with your computer you can try doing a system restore. Do you know how to do this?

My wedding photographer put all of the pictures she took on four disks, two of them are importing correctly, but two of them show data on the disks, but no individual JPG files. I tried importing through windows live photo gallery and finding through my computer, I also tried the open folder to view files, everything says there are no picture files on this disk, even though we have viewed them using another computer.
 

A:CD shows data, but not individual picture files

Welcome to the TSG forum.

Photographers own the rights to print the pictures .. And usually don't give you the readable Images that the camera took.
They probably have proprietary software to read the pictures ..
The discs you can't read are probably what you'd take to get them printed.
The images you can see .. Are low resolution copies that probably won't make good prints ..For previews only.

They don't want you to print them yourself or have anyone else do it ..They want to charge you.
What's the extension (file type) of the data files in the Disc that you can't view ???

I work with autistic children and i have a bunch of VBscripts set up to say things through the speakers like "I want juice". I was wonder it it was possible to associate a photo with these files so when they are viewed as thumbnails you would see a picture of a Juice box. Other scripts would be "I want cookie" or "I want Toy".

Below is an example of the script i have in a notepad with .vbs extension:

Dim Message, sapi
message="I Want Juice"
Set sapi=Createobject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.speak message

A:Is it possible to assign photos as Icons to individual files?

Hi Daysaved, welcome to TSF.

You need to re-size the photo to about 20x20 pixels, or any standard icon resolution.
Save the file as .ico

You can now right click your file, go to 'Properties'. Under the 'shortcut' tab click 'Change Icon'. Browse to your newly created .ico file and select it.

This should work for all types of files.

I have been scanning up photos in Windows 8 and now windows 8.1. Unfortunately I forget and left the system open for more than 4 hours and it upgraded itself. At any rate in going back to check some of the photos I had scanned, they are no longer in their folders and have disappeared completely. I did searches, etc and nothing. I was also in the middle of scanning a bunch of photos when suddenly the message came up that the folder I was scanning to was no longer there. An hour later I finally located the entire folder and scanned photos in the recycle bin. It just went there itself.

What can be done to prevent this. I scan and toss the photos but now I find that they are disappearing days down the line.

Does anyone know of a program that can zip files individually, like in batch? I mean, every program I find just zips the files all into one, but I want to zip a folder full of hundreds of individual files into individual zips for each file. I don't want to zip the entire folder into one zip, but each file into a zip itself. This is murder to search for on google.

HI  I did a one-click backup of my Yoga 3 pro machine when I did a fresh load. It worked like a charm and was convenient. I now, however, need to get some individual files from that backup but cannot find how to do so.  I have checked several forums but have not come right. Please, can you offer some assistance?
