Right click the folder, Advanced, Encrypt contents (or something similar).

Will encrypt the files, locked exclusively to your user account.

You can create an encrypted folder with a program called TrueCrypt it is also free or you can make a small donation to the creator

TrueCrypt is dead and the makers suggest not using it anymore. If you have windows 7 or later then file encryption is build in, just Right-click the folder or file you want to encrypt, and then click Properties. Click the General tab, and then click Advanced.Select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, click OK, and then click OK again. Backup the Encryption certificate that is created.
