PoneToungthar,

Every time you create a thread, you open it in this "Test" section and I have to move it - please use the correct "Help" sections in future, or you may find you cannot post at all.

As to your question, the short answer is: you cannot. Searching the forums will provide you with a lot more information in greater detail, but in brief: Your plain language script is within the compiled .exe, but in compressed form. It is not immediately viewable with a hex editor, but is by no means secure as it is expanded in memory when the .exe is run.  So, compiling an AutoIt script will prevent quick snooping, but a determined, experienced hacker can relatively easily get your source - including passwords, specific filenames, etc - or the encryption routines you have used in your script to encrypt/decrypt them if they are stored in another file.

And as part of my eternal quest to protect the Oozlum bird, this thread will now be locked - just like all the others on the same subject.
