    Greetings. I am making a password protection program whose purpose is to protect a folder. I have searched msdn and the refrences and cannot find the code to tell whether a specifc folder is being opened. Can some please point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    You would probably have to store the files to be password protected into some sort of uncompressed archive and then password that.

    Ok... I've seen it done with folders before. And, the archive thing can't be used for what I need. Thanks though!
