There are some programs on the internet that could help you. I had in the past a program called Folder Lock a very efficient one which i think was doing what you said. Good luck you can try to find it just by googling it!

I am assuming you are using windows. You have to use a software program to password protect your folder. There are a few free programs out there that will do it. Here is one: http://axcrypt.axantum.com/

I do not know of any way that you can password protect a folder without the use of third party software. There could be other solutions, depending on the type of files that you are wishing to protect. If you were using Excel spreadsheets or Word documents, then you could always password protect the individual files to deny access to them.
