Which version of XP are you using ?
If you're using XP Professional, right click on the folder/file you want to
protect and remove all the users except yourself. Be sure to give yourself
complete control over the folder/file.
If you're using XP Home, reboot your computer to the "safe" mode and then do
the above, as with XP Pro. Windows XP Home doesn't have the advanced
folder/file security available for the normal user but you can access it
from the safe mode.

passwording the individual files in a folder? The zip file option seems to
be capable for passwording the files in a zip folder, but not the folder
itself. Will NTSF allow passwording the folder?
