Here's how to to create one on your desktop.

4. Now richt-click on the nameless folder and select Properties.
5. Press Change Icon in the Customize tab and select one that has no image.
6. Press OK and you have your invisible folder that can only be accessed by going to C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Desktop.
