Please tell how I can disallow a particular user from deleting any files (including the ones created by him) on a Windows 7 computer.

Thanks!

This seems to work only for existing files, and I have to do it for each file separately. How do I do the same for all files (including those that will be created in the future by the user himself)?

Thanks!

This is could cause some real functional problems with using Windows and software packages as a global prevention of file deletion could stop legitimate temporary file deletion by programs.  It may be better to restrict the effect to certain file locations but to help you best as ve3ofa says we really need some background about why you need this.
