hey admin, thanks for the tip, but i guess it just makes the folder hidden and unsearchable; its' still visible in the explorer view. How do you make the folder disappear from that view too ?

The command,
attrib +h +s "c:\abc"
will only make the folder 'abc' a system file which will be hidden only. If you have the option "Show Hidden Files" under Folder Options, the folder will be clearly visible and accessible.

Heres what you should do along with using the above command,

For Windows 98 type the following command,
ren "c:\abc" Alt+1982
Here we are basically renaming the folder to an ASCII value which makes the folder inaccessible in Window 98. The Alt+1982 means press the Alt key and type 1982 number but from the numpad on the right on the keyboard. This will not work by pressing the numbers from the numpad at the top.

Now this will also not work in Windows XP or Vista etc since these OS can recognize the ASCII values. So we will need to take a little different route here. Please see the below steps.

For Win XP/Vista, use the following command after using the attrib command to make the folder inaccessible,
cacls "c:\abc" /d users
Here we are actually setting the access policy for the folder. The /d users command denies access to the folder for all users.

Now to make the folder accessible type the following command,
cacls "c:\abc" /g users:f
This will add full access for the folder.

Hope this helps.
