Windows 7 Ultimate x64
password / restriction / crypt / folder

I want to put a password / crypt / to restrict acces on :
C / users / username / AppData / Roaming / Yahoo folder
On my PC is no other users, i have no password ( and i won't have one )
Is there a way to do that ? Maybe a password ? I use Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Thank you.
