I used to travel 6 months of the year and people would get on my machine and reconfigure it. If you go to your bios, hopefully you can put your code in there.

The alternative is a shareware program that you can download which makes the files completely invisable, not just. shaded out.

You can use the police editor (on win98 CD) to protect this

You can find the policy editor under D:\Tools\Reskit\Netadmin\Poledit  on the win98 CD

The policy editor give the possibility to activate all kind of security.
