Password protect a folder.

Posted by Aayush at 9:05 PM 0 comments Links to this post
I will not be responsible if you lose your files or folders by using this method.
There are various softwares on the market, using which you can completly password protect your folder and important stuffs inside it. But some of them might be malicious or too expensive for a regular person to dowload, so here is a tutorial on how to password protect a folder using VBS scripting(dont worry, you wont have to install anything if you already have windows).
  • First off, start a new page on notepad and paste the following code on it:
title Folder myfolder
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST myfolder goto MDLOCKER
echo Are you sure u want to lock the folder(Y/N)
set/p "cho=>"
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK
if %cho%==y goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.
ren myfolder "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
echo Folder locked
goto End
echo Enter password to Unlock folder
set /p "pass=>"
if NOT %pass%==password goto FAIL
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" myfolder
echo Folder unlocked successfully
goto End
echo Invalid password
goto UNLOCK2
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Personal
echo Folder created successfully
goto End
echo Last chance to enter correct password to unlock folder
set /p "pass=>"
if not %pass%==password goto FAIL2
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Personal
echo Folder unlocked successfully
  • Now change "myfolder" (line 3, 5, 16 and 25) into the name of your folder and change "password"(line 23) into your desired password.
  • Now go to File>Save As and locate where your folder is located.
  • Save the file as "lock.bat" and save and exit.
  • If you double click the file the first time, it will ask you "if you want to lock the folder or not?" Press Y if you want to, N if you dont want to.
  • Now your folder has disappeared, which means now it is protected from intruders. To restore the folder, double click your "lock.bat" and it will ask for your password. If you enter wrong password twice, it will automatically close the dialogue box and you will have to open it again.
Please remember to hide your "lock.bat" from places where other people can easily find it. Remember the location of the folder that you locked becuase you need to keep "lock.bat" back in that place (if you moved from original locaiton) to restore the folder.

How to control PC using Iphone

Posted by Aayush at 9:52 PM 0 comments Links to this post

Iphone is full of endless possibilities, you just need the correct resources to make use of them. Using some of the 3rd party apps available on ITunes, you can have total control of a PC(when the user is logged in) and today, I am going to talk about two apps from Itunes.

What do download?
ITap is a app that turns your IPhone into a wireless keyboard/mouse for your PC or MAC. You can download the paid Iphone app here for $3.99 or the free lite version here

Remainder: lite version includes only volume control and none of the mouspad/keyboard. Even with the paid version, you cannot see the computer screen on iPhone.

How to setup?
After you download the apps on iphone, download the server client on your PC. Run and complete the installer, which will give you "iTap Receiver" program on your desktop or your Start Menu. To pair your computer with iPhone,open the app on iPhone and start the program on your computer. You should see your iPhone's name under "Devices running compatible version." Select your device and click on "Pair on Selected Device" If done successfully, you can use iPhone Screen as your Mouse Pad and also as a keyboard. Cool eh??

Mocha VNC:Another app from iTunes store which gives you absolute control of a PC is Mocha VNC which provides access to a VNC Server. Using your iPhone, you can connect to a Windows PC or Mac OS X and see the files, programs, and resources exactly as you would if you were sitting at your desk, just on a smaller screen.
What do download?
You can download the paid app for iPhone here for $5.99 or the free Mocha VNC lite here.
After downloading your selection of app into iPhone, download the VNC client server executable file into your computer. I downloaded the Enterprise Version from ThePirateBay. Click here fore more info on torrents download.

How to setup?
Just before you are done with the installation of VNC client, you will get "VNC Server Properties" Dialogue box. Make sure you configure your password in the first page and then click OK on the dialogue box and finish the installation. After you are done with your installation, search for "VNC Server (User Mode)" on your computer and open it. It will display a new icon on your taskbar. Right click on it and select "Status". Click on "Test" where it says "Details and Address". The first time you click start, it will say connection failed because you haven't port forwarded your router. Click here for more info on port forwarding.
For this software to run properly, you need to port forward your router into 5900 for Starting Port and 5900 in Ending Port. After port forwarding the router, click on Test>Start again and it should say "Connection Test Successful" and it will give you a IP-address which looks like ( which you need to connect. Dont close the dialogue box yet because you will use that ip-address on Mocha VNC that you downloaded on iPhone.

Open Mocha VNC on iphone and go to Menu>Edit Connections and select a row. Now put down the ip-address that you got earlier from testing the server. Put down 5900 on VNC Server Port and your password should be the one that you configured when you installed the software for the first. Give it a name just for yourself and then hit "Connect" on upper right side. It should say connecting to "[your ip address] and then VNC Negotiation and you will have your computer screen on your iphone. Now you can control the computer since you have the screen, type around or control volume using ITap.

Leave a comment if you have any problems while doing the setup.
