I have a vb program which uses bmp files and displays them on the screen. These files are kept in a folder named "Graficos". I would like to compress all those bmp files so that the program code, internally, would uncompress the needed bmp in every moment, it would use it, and then it would close it. Above all, I want the bmp files to be completely invisible for everyone.

I've had a look at "pak" files... but I don't understand a word. Please, could you help me? I will be very grateful to anyone who could help me with this way (pak files) or with any other one.
