    Hi,
    I was just wondering after looking through the Local Security Policy area of windows Vista if;

    You can disable the changing of the option to view hidden files or folders for all users except Administrators.
    Also if you can disable the searching of hidden files or filders for all users except Administrators.

    Ive looked in the Policy but cant see anything there, i thought it could of been an option.
    Is there a script anywhere or registry editing?

    Plus what settings in there would you disable for most users, can you disable CMD?

    Thanks.

    The only way ive found is to create the folder and make it a system file/folder.
    There is an option to view these types of files in the options though which isnt great.
