file permissions: can this be done?

Posted: 03-01-2009, 04:57 PM


To limit the effects of a potential virus, I want to do the followin
for the Limited User account

1) all current files and folders in My Documents can only be read
Contents of files may not be modified. No items may be delete

2) however..... new files/folders may be created in My Documents. Thes
user should have Full Control over these files

Then once a month or so, I run a batch script which changes th
permissions of all newly created files (items under 2) to become mor
restrictive (1

I thought this would be pretty simple, but somehow I cannot get this t
work. It is driving me crazy
