i have a file in the machine i want to give access permission to the file only to specific users.i am able to do it by changing the security settings but my problem is any body can change the security settings whether he has logged in to the machine or not.for eg if i deny sam the right to open a file in my machine by -right clicking the file and going to  properties and then security.sam can himself change the settings and can give himself the right to open the file.i dont want this to happen as it becomes meaningless to deny permission to sam to open the file.i want sam to change the security settings only if he has logged in into the machine.in the above example since i have logged in and denied sam the permission he should not be able to change the access rite to the file.
