Ok i need a program that will protect my d:\button folder...  i do not want people other than me getting into it...  so i dont know any other way to do this than to make a program.

Basically i want a program that will run UNDETECTED in the background (Even in proccesses if possible) and if someone goes to that folder they are asked for a password...  if it is wrong, explorer will close, eitherwise they have permission...  I need the code for either VB 6.0 or VB.NET, although i would prefere 6.0...

Thanks a million...
