File or folder encryption

Hi all...I am just wondering if there is a free program out there can can quickly encrypt a file or folder? If so can anyone recommend any? It doesn't have to be super encrypted its just to stop prying eyes in to some personal documents

Don't know if I have posted this in the right section?

TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux

This software won't encrypt a file by itself. And it isn't compatible when encrypting a system partition or drive on Windows 7 yet. But it hasn't got an issue with Windows 7 when creating a container which is basically an encrypted folder. Full support for Windows 7 is on it's way though.
