Windows 7: how do you hide files beyond the basic?

how do you hide files beyond the basic?

So I currently use the basic hide file option for files I don't want others to see if I let them use my computer, but I'm wondering how I can go the extra mile. Is there a way to further hide it if someone clicks the "Show hidden files and folders" in control panel? So it is still hidden when that option is chosen?


Also, is there a way to password protect the files?

Nope, just an outline of what I'm gonna do to yours, and I can't have her finding out. That would ruin all the fun......


Anyone try AntiSnooper - Privacy Protection 1.1?
