    I am looking for some software which allows me to lock windows folders in Windows explorer, which then prompts me for a password should I want to access it by clicking on the folder.

    The only software I have found only allows you to lock/unlock in thier software gui.

    Does anyone know any software which does this?

    You won't find any software (that's worth its salt anyway) because it's already built in to Windows. Create seperate user accounts for each user of the computer. Then change the Security properties of the folder you want to protect to only allow your username access.
