Heiya Ali!

That might be a difficult thing to do, please let us know when you find out. I once were summoned to find out and could not put my finger on it...

Happy hunting!

Also, you migth consider asking through teh Windows forun to see if it can be done in hardware, that was my next step...

Thanx Dokol...
I got an idea to prevent these things.....
To copy paste using commands we can clear clipboard for this....
For drag n drop we can track drag n drop activity by using API and can cancel thr drag n drop.
For preventing writing on a pendrive... when pendrive is connected we can disable the pendrive ( i have give me rights in my app) in this case my pen drive will open in read mode (i have created the explorer having such options).....
But i cannot do this in default explorer......

Now the help i need i m using loops to create and cloning the icons this is taking too much time... how can i decrease time....

My code is like this....

all files in a folder
draw icons set icons....
how can i expand icons in low time...

Thanx
