    There are only three registry files provided to make shortcut folder on Desktop and My Computer which is generally unable to renamed or deleted . the folder is accessible to everyone but cannot be deleted by the user. In other case if you have some data/games if you want not to delete them using registry edit is useful for you but the problem here is shortcut can not be deleted but the content inside can be deleted
    Create a folder named newfolder.reg

    Now open "newfolder.reg" folder from notepad by right clicking and select "open with" then "notepad".

    * In the line:
    @=" Folder name "
    Change the name within quotes to the name which you want to rename and can be seen on Desktop and My Computer.

    Now double click on your "newfolder.reg" folder . it will show you some dialog box Press OK. This will automatically will add the registry to your computer.
    Then If you want the same folder to be shown on My Computer then run "folder_desktop.reg". But if you want to make it appear on both run both the files.

    it a easy and small procedure among all the different procedures to protect your folder to avoid get deleted just Right click on your shortcut folder and go to properties option through context sensitive menu to switch the attribute to read only. If it happens to read only you have done with creating undeleted folder .

    this is the best method I know to set that the required folder should only be usable such for open, rename and delete etc. by you and not for anybody else
    follow the basic steps:
    1. First, switch off Simple File Sharing. , Go to My Computer >Tools > Folder Options.

    2. Click on the "View" tab. Scroll below and go on and select uncheck "Use simple file sharing" then click Ok.

    3. Just Right click on the folder that you want to get protected and click to its properties.

    4. From there click "Security" tab.

    5. Remove all the user accounts except you for that you need to click on the user accounts and then click on "Remove" button.

    there is simple steps you just need to write few lines in command prompt :-
    1) Open your command prompt
    2) Press Win key +R, type ‘cmd’ in the run box and press enter
    3) Now in In cmd prompt write the following code:
    cacls/e /c /d %username%
    For instance, the command should go like this:
    cacls Private /e /c /d %username%
    after that That code will change the folder as “Private” not accessible and undeletable. After that whenever try to open that particular folder it will throw forms and will not allows them use that folder. And whenever you want to open that folder you just need to execute this code in cmd prompt and press “Enter”
    cacls/e /c /g %username%:f
