Thanks a lot guys.

Yes it still possible if they will download a software where you can allow your protected files be open. They can use Lockhunter which is a great tool for finding and accessing your files. Also they can open your files by doing it manually. These are the steps on how will do it. 

First, open your browser and search the file. Right click the files and choose Properties. Then, there is a dialogue box that will appear on the bottom of the page, choose "Unblock" and finally click "Apply".

I hope this will help.

There are times that several folders on your computer are inaccessible because there are processes that have exclusive access to that folder or folders. And sometimes files and folders are still inaccessible even if the program is already closed. At this point, restarting your computer might be the solution. This is what I experienced with one of the McAfee products I have on my computer, the McAfee QuickClean.

I normally ZIP the files of the installer mainly to conserve space on my USB flash drive and I only extract it to a temporary folder whenever I need to install it again. After installing the software that’s the time that the extracted installer on the temporary folder would be deleted but whenever I try deleting them after the installation, I always receive an error. To attempt a fix, I rebooted the computer and tried deleting the files again. That’s the only time that the temporary files were deleted. If you have the same problem as with mine before, try rebooting the machine then try it again.
