Compress it in a ZIP file. You can password protect with Windows-embeded ZIP. (Whatever they call it)

Lol, yes, pursued, never the same person twice.
No, my dad has it, he put it on excel, and whenever I double click on it, it asks for a password before displaying the file in excel.

Www.rarlabs.com You can compress to rar and add a password. This will encrypt the file and reduce it's size by a small margin. Take heed encrypted files aren't going to be reduced in size by much.
