I'm going to guess that you are wanting to prevent someone from changing those file attributes - correct?

If so, then there are other ways to change file attributes. You might be better off using multiple user accounts and setting the NTFS permissions to prevent unwanted changes.

Yes that's right you are! Also this option make effective on that file or folder only system that we set NTFS Permission but when we copy that file or folder to other computer, it's will not effect.
So we still have the way to make that file effect all even other computer?

I forget about setting up NTFS permission, if you not mind please let show me.
Best Regards,

I don't know how to hide those items from the general tab.

I don't know how to hide the general tab.

If there is a way to hide what you want to hide, you would have to do it on every computer.

I set the Taskbar tab (in Taskbar & Start menu Properties) to Auto-hide the Taskbar. When I select Apply, the taskbar dips and disappears for a second and then comes right back and stays there. Is there a way to make the auto-hide work? W7 Home 6.1 / 7600 Thank you
