    You wouldn't need to. The only one that would be able to read it, would be the loged in user that created it.

    OK, I see what you mean, I just thought that it would give you an option to enter in a password, if say a household uses 1 profile.

    None that I can think of that are native NT utilities. Maybe a third party app?

    I perfer everyone has there own user account. It makes seperating things like files, desktop settings and security easer.

    if your a household that all uses one profile.... consider migrating to other profiles... this way you can be a lot more organized, and yes you can also privatize your documents......
