    I suggest that u use WinRAR to create .zip or .rar archives.. Its so easy to use and u can easily find the option of password protection!

    You're using XP, right? Then why go for winzip when you can compress and protect using the inbuilt functionality.

    IIRC, you can open a zip file and goto tools menu. There is option to add pwd.

    If you wanna remove winzip and then try then simply open the compressed file. Right click and select "add password"
    Hope it helps.
