Not to my knowledge Mr Big. However, I must tell you about a great product. Wanting something similar, I searched the web a few years back and came up with 'Folder Guard'. This utility not only locks folders, it completely hides them so no one can even tell that they exist.

I keep all my private folders this way... No one at home (kids) or at work (snoops, etc), will ever even know I have certain folders on my HD. Much less access them,

You can do this perse, in that Win98 will allow you to hide folders. You will have to type in the actual location in the address box, i.e. c:\Windows\System32\hidden folder. The system does not prompt for a password, just allows you to hide filefolders.

Just right click on the filefolder (never tried hiding an exe, assume will work though!) Properties\Attributes -> HIdden.

Be warned however there is a work around to this!

PGPDisk. It creates a file of whatever size that you want. When you open it with your passphrase it is then a folder that is assigned a drive letter and shows up in 'My Computer'. Like Z:
You put whatever you want in there then when you close it it's encrypted and disappears back to a file on your harddrive. It's an awesome program, I use it all the time.

This includes the entire PGP package, or you can choose to install pgpdisk by itself if you want.
