LOCK OR HIDE PRIVATE FOLDER IN WINDOWS WITHOUT SOFTWARE
Many times you face this situation; you want to hide some personal data from the other person using your computer. However most of the person uses any software for that which can be troublesome sometime. So here is the trick to lock any folder in windows without any software.
Suppose you want to lock the folder “hitman” in C: drive.
The path for the folder is C:\games\hitman.
Go to C:\games the create a text file and type command
ren hitman hitman.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
Now save this text file as hide.bat

Create another text file and type in it
ren hitman.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} hitman
Now save this text file as show.bat

Now you can see 2 batch files “hide” and “show”.
Press “hide” and the folder hitman will change to control panel and you cannot view its contents. Press “show” and you will get back your original folder.
You can move this folder to anywhere on your drives. But make sure you click on “hide” or “show” file when it is placed in C:\games; else it wont work. Always remember the folder is to be locked and "show" and "hide" files should be in same folder at the time of using them, after use you can move it.

Note: To rename your text files as bat files?

Just go to my computer->tools->folder options->go to the view tab.
Now uncheck the 'Hide extensions for known file types' then click apply.
Now rename your text files as bat files.


HoW to Enable hibernation ?Under Windows 98, Me, or 2000 there was an option in the shutdown dialog box to enter the computer into hibernation (where all the content of the RAM is copied to the hard disk). The shutdown dialog box of Windows XP doesn't offer any longer the hibernation button. Some users may get confused about how to enable the hibernation mode. If this mode is supported by your motherboard (ACPI) you have to do the following:

1.Click Start and Shut Down,

2.Point the standby button and maintain the shift key pushed,

3.A new hibernation button appears: click it while still holding the shift key: voila your PC will hibernate.
