    Hi,

    I was wondering if the following is possible or not.
    I want to put a message box on certain folders. To explain, when the user opens a certain folder, windows puts up a message on the screen with a message like "This folder is out of date, please use folder 3." or something along the same lines and then open the folder when they click "OK".
    I don't want to restrict access, I just want to give the user information when they enter a folder.

    I have searched about a bit but I don't really know if it is possible and what to search for.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It'll take some searching but I think I saw this trick somewhere.
    Do a ggogle search for "registry tips and tricks".
    Here's a good one:
