    Run a DOS command prompt type "attrib /?" and go from there

    attrib +r <folder name> /S /D

    should do it.

    If it's software you want, then PropertiesPlus can do that, plus a few other things.

    As a side note, steves's suggestion works as follows:

    attrib +r <folder name> /S /D
    will only mark the folder as read only

    attrib +r <folder name>\*.* /S /D
    will mark folder contents (including subdirectories) as read only, but will not mark the folder named as read only

    So you would do both
    attrib +r <folder name> /S /D
    and
    attrib +r <folder name>\*.* /S /D
    to get your desired result.
