A Few request

Recommended Posts


REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer]"NoControlPanel"=dword:00000001

With This you won't see Control Panel in My Computer anymore.

You'll need to reboot (or simply restart explorer) for the change to take effect.

But you can also do this with Poledit (on your CD) or RegTick Pro. Also get RegShot as you are at it.

With Poledit or Regtick you can apply restriction policies and with Regshot you can monitor what it does in the registry and make a registry file of the changes.

I don't think you can lock the drive C. Depends of course what you exactly mean by that.

also to be able to lock the C: drive

If you completely lock your C: drive then you can NOT use Windows anymore if Windows is installed on your C: drive. Do you mean preventing files from being changed or deleted on your C drive? Or even encrypt or hide files with sensitive stuff on there?

File/folder encryption is possible but only for NTFS formatted volumes under Win2000/XP. if you want file/folder encryption under Win9xME and/or FAT32 volumes you'll have to use 3rd party utils for that.

yes

Like I said before, you will need third party tools in order to do this. cant do it with Win98 alone. that kind of security is provided in third party tools for Win9xME and built-in NT-based editions of Windows using NTFS. Search for these tools at Google/Yahoo.

To prevent control panel apps from running/changing system settings/etc, please see this:

Zipfldr.dll icon is inside the dll [icongroup 101 as shown in ResHaker].

Edit/replace it with Resource Hacker:

FYI:

You can install WinZip or PowerArchiver, and then export their icons [with ResHaker], then import saved *.ICO file into zipfldr.dll .
