When you selected protection did you de-select the options below

Select Locked Cells
Select unlocked cells

Also what version office are you using as i have tested this in office 2010

but when another user open it, still appear "Advanced Filter"...

Poor form to cancel the request when you haven't solved the problem as per your comment " but when another user open it, still appear "Advanced Filter". "

Here is an article that steps it out.

Also I have tried this on Excel 2003 between two machine and users can not un-hide the hidden sheet.
