hi, thanks for the reply.
No no no... my situation is not that complicated and the file is not that confidential. I only use the same login with my VERY YOUNG kids, they like playing with the keyboard and mouse and clicking everywhere, I worry they 'accidentally' delete / edit / move away some of my files away. They can do lots of unexpected things.
To put it simply, I just don't want anyone using my login be able to delete / edit / modify / moved away any files under a particular folder(s) or administrative password is needed. It doesn't matter they read / copy it, that's no problem at all. As long as the files under that folders cannot be changed or modified... something
I am looking for official method. I don't want to employ a third party program while there is a perfect solution by windows 7
