10.4: Run Warcraft III on Intel Macs
Authored by: Tick on Jul 14, '06 01:40:16PM

This problem also occurs with DivX - and can be fixed without having to archive or delete folders.

Steps to blocking unwanted folders without deleting or archiving them:
1. Start a Terminal
2. At the command prompt enter the command "sudo chmod 000 /Library/QuickTime/DivX\ Decoder.component" and press Enter
3. Then enter the following command "sudo chmod 000 /Library/QuickTime/DivX\ Encoder.component" and press Enter

The "chmod" command changes the access rights of the folders so nothing can access the folders or files contained in the folders.

Note: If you want to set the folder right back to the way it was before use the command: "sudo chmod 775 FOLDERNAME"

When you use either of these commands you will often be asked for the root password. It is possible to change the rights via Finder but it involves changing file owerships, which I wouldn't recommend.
