I need to create a folder which does not have execution permission. I mean the files stored inside that folder should not be able to execute.

Can anybody help me?

Create the folder, then right click on it and select Properties
Click on the Security tab (if it's not visible, you'll have to boot into Safe Mode to see it)
You'll see 2 boxes in the next Window
- The users/groups in the top box
- The permissions in the lower box

When you click on a user/group in the top box you can view their permissions in the lower box.
Deny permissions take precedence over Allow permissions.

CAVEAT: As you can see there's several users/groups mentioned - to include the Administrators and the System.
Be very careful in changing these settings as the wrong setting can even deny you access to the folder.
I'd suggest starting with just changing it for the Users group (as long as you belong to the Administrator group).
Then test to make sure it works as you wanted it to.
