You can right click on the folder, select Properties and mark it read-only on the General tab.

Also, you may find this free tool handy:

Also there's a good chance you'll find something like what you describe on this site:

A lot of the utilities on there have a license key but you can get one for each individual app. Plus if you make a small donation you can get one that never times out and is good for all the apps on the site. Esp for hotkey and "desktop zone" stuff there's a lot of cool utilities there.
