    u shd try out Folder Lock, it works pretty well i think. or if u r using WinXP, try using NTFS...it has some of those capabilities, though i m not really sure about that.

    here is a nice trip that works on 98 me
    it doesen't work on XP ;)

    go to dos prompt

    and create a new directory:

    md hello

    then rename it as

    ren hello alt+255

    *note hold alt and u type 255 ;)
    and press enter :D
    that's all ur folder is locked ;)

    to open it do the reverse ;)
    njoy!!!

    ..:: peace ::..

    Hey,
    If UR Using XP On NTFS; Then Turn Off simple file Sharing (Tools>Folder Option>View>Use Simple File Sharing (Recomended) (Turn it Off)) Then Reboot.
    Now U will find a Security tab in folder's Property Dialog Box (Similar to windows 2000).
    Use it to set permission.
    I hope it would Help U...... :D :D :D
