How to encrypt a file or folder on Win 7 Pro ?

Is there a way to encrypt a file or folder on Win 7 Pro 64bit ? I would like to keep all my passwords and/or account logins for all my on line activity somewhere on the PC so I don't have to setup a new password/login every time I can't remember what password goes with what on-line account ?

Running a personal home network with 2 Win 7 machines and 3 XP Pro (SP3) machines with a firewall and AV protection.

Windows 7 Pro only has EFS - Encrypting File System Manager Shortcut - Create

Some free 3rd Party Encryption software - One I would recommend is True Crypt
