Hi Everybody,

how to make 'Password Protected' and 'Read Only' i.e. un-editable.

Any Idea.

Best Regards,

Read-only: Set the Notebook option Editable->False.
Password-protected: I don't think Mathematica has this capability (yet?). You can encrypt a notebook with a third-party program, but once it's decrypted, the user can save it unencrypted. Even with the Notebook option Saveable->False, the user can still use "Save As" to get an unencrypted copy, as well as copy and paste.
