    Thanks for the information. I initially studied the the methods from msdn and was scared that we need such big effort to encrypt the web.config file’s section. In fact this all is fun. In fact msdn provides deep info and we programmers are always in search of short cut way! At least i think so!! Thank you again!!

    For those people who do not have the security tab on their folder properties using windows xp need to enable the security tab by opening my computer –> Tools –> Folder options. click on the view tab ensure “Use File sharing is unchecked. Then you should see the security tab.
