     I was working on this a while ago, and never finished it, but I have seen a couple of Folder locking program submitted, so I figured I would share my version. It works on the same principle as most, renaming to a special folders corresponding CLSID. It also adds a to the context menu, the option to lock. The only thing I haven't been able to figure out is, how to incorporate my own icon to the locked files. I did figure one way, by making my own special folder CSLID, but when I did this, if you right clicked on a locked file, you would see two opens and also explorer. the one open would open the folder normally. This time I am using my own CLSID as well, but its the same as the windows shortcut (lnkfile). Any feedback is appreciated.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
