    My os is windows vista home premium on a dell laptop. I'd like to know how to
    create a password to protect a file. I know how to " zip " , but can't find
    the option to create password. I had tried right click. properties, security
    etc. to no avail. Thank you.

    This open source (free) office suite (similar to MS Office) allows you to
    password protect documents your create.

    In MS Word
    Require a password to open or modify a file
    When you create a password, write it down and keep it in a secure place. If
    you lose the password, you cannot open or gain access to the
    password-protected document.

    Open the file.
    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click Security.
    Do one of the following:
    Create a password to open

    In the Password to open box, type a password, and then click OK.
    In the Reenter password to open box, type the password again, and then click
    OK.
    Create a password to modify
