  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to\015\012 Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.\015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. Locate the file that you want, right-click the file, and then click\015\012 Properties.\015\012
  4. \015\012
  5. On the General tab, click Advanced.\015\012
  6. \015\012
  7. Under Compress or Encrypt attributes, select the\015\012 Encrypt contents to secure data check box, and then\015\012 click OK.\015\012
  8. \015\012
  9. Click OK. If the file is located in an unencrypted folder, you\015\012 receive an Encryption Warning dialog box. Use one of the\015\012 following steps:\015\012
      \015\012
    • If you want to encrypt only the file, click Encrypt the file only, and then click OK.\015\012
    • \015\012
    • If you want to encrypt the file and the folder in which it is\015\012 located, click Encrypt the file and the parent\015\012 folder, and then click OK.\015\012
Note that if you allow other users access to an encrypted folder and they put an encrypted file in it then they would need to grant you access to file before you can open it.

Also encrypted files cannot be stored on remote servers unless it's configured as Trusted for delegation. To do that you would need admin access to the domain controller

I'm not 100% certain but I don't think encryption capabilities are built into Windows Home editions. You could compress the file in this case and password protect it.
