I've read the VxD-tutorial on this page. I think it's good, but is it possible to "hook the ifs-man" and to hide a folder and the content of it?

I'm not sure but I think its possible, some done something similar but with process, he only memory-patch kernel32.dll, He didn't use a VXD, but with them it could work too.
But it won't be easy.

Correct me if i'm wrong!:grin:

is very easy to do. is as you said, hook IFS and block access to the directory.


hooking kernel32.dll apis can be much work. if you just want to avoid peoples entering this directory, is easy: just hook SetCurrentDirectory(). but, if you want block all access to this directory, a low-level driver is more appropriated i think. hooking all file APIs seens too much work... and you stil get open to DOS/ring0 accesses.

It can't be to hard, my computer does it by it's self. The icon actually disappears (not the text). I think it's related to the corrupted HTML dll; when online, I have to cause a repaint to read the garbled docs. Sometime I'll reinstall windows.

Just out of curiosity, which windows are you on, eet? Sounds like
a win9x to me ;).

More specifically Win 98 SE Full on a Celeron. I think I'll reinstall with Win 98 SE Upgrade. I've had less issues with it. If I ever get linux to work, I'll eventually use a WinEm.
