Hi all

In windows when we move from one folder to another and hence change the currently active folder. Is their any event fired or any .NET API etc to monitor this change.

Antivirus programs monitor that kind of stuff and require permission before opening certain files/folders, I really don't think that there is a specific program to do that. Naturally, you could right your own program to do that for you.
I will continue to look into it and update you when I find an answer!

Very interesting question. I guess there must be some windows API that can accomplish this but this is hefty task. Apart from AV intervention there are lots of things to take care of.
