Lock your Folder WIthout Any Software.

Its a trick which can be implemented in Windows XP to deny access to some folders. Use the steps given below to use trick.

Suppose you want to lock the folder games in d: which
has the path D:\Games.In the same drive create a text
file and type:


ren games games.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Now save this text file as loc.bat

create another text file and type in it:

ren games.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} games

Now save this text file as key.bat
Now you can see 2 batch files loc and key. Press loc and the folder games will change to control panel and you cannot view its contents. Press key and you will get back your original folder

There are other codes which can even be tried::: Use the step as above to turn them into other folders except control corner. To do that simply replace the .extension with the names given below.

{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} - Turned to Explorer {0DF44EAA-FF21-4412-828E-260A8728E7F1} - Turned to startmenu properties {6DFD7C5C-2451-11d3-A299-00C04F8EF6AF} - Turned to Folder Options {7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} - Turned to Network Connections {D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524152} - Turned to Fonts Folder {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} - Turned to Shedule tasks {E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD} - Turned to Scanners & camera {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} - Turned to Recycle bin {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} - Turned to Printers Folder

So sit back and hide your important folders from others

The only problem with this trick is that if someone opens the folder using a software suppose power achiever or winRar explorer then the extension to the folder would also be shown. And if the person deletes the extension then the folder can be easily be accessible.
