    Pasword Entry

    Ive seen it before but nothing specific to my needs.Im interested in making a program to 'lock' a folder so no other user can acces it without the correct pass.I dont want them to be able to view it through c: either.Also when they search for a file name if the file is within the folder they must enter the password.Any ideas on how i wauld go baout this ?

    No chance. You could never create a program like that. It has to go thru the system registers.

    It's possible, but not the way you were thinking. You could write a program that encrypts the contents of the folder and only the person with the password could decrypt it.

    My best code is written with the delete key.
