Hide Files



I need to hide movies and pictures from my wife on my Vista Home premium (I'm sure you can guess what files). When I put them as hidden they still pop up on the search menue is there a way to make them totally hidden like on XP?

password encrypt the files..

Try using command prompt. It really works well.
Open Command prompt and type in as the following example.

attrib +h c:\autoexec.bat
This command will hide your autoexec.bat file so a standard user browsing your hard disk drive would not be able to see the file.
To make the file unhidden use -h instead of the +h so the line would look like the below example.
attrib -h c:\autoexec.bat
