What do you need to hide? Might just binary encode the resource (maybe with some hashing etc) or bundle it into the main binary?

Learner it's really no different then going to C:\program files\PROGRAM_NAME\
and viewing all that jazz. Also opening and editing .dll files.
The basic user doesn't do **** to that. The above basic might edit some files to change the UI or rename some things inside. Advance might be able to hack it.

If there is something in there that you don't want users accessing you're going to have to use a very robust security scheme. And even then it will probably be cracked anyway, and just to embarrass you for even trying to protect your app they'll probably try to crack it in less than an hour. (if a company like Adobe cannot manage to protect their assets, do you think you can? of course not).
Not to sound meanhearted, but I've released software in the past and know that it's useless to try to do this sort of thing. Back in 2003 I released a game, and even though I was using what I thought was a clever scheme to validate serial numbers pirates reverse engineered it and used it to spit out every single valid serial number in a matter of a day. If someone wants to break your software bad enough they simply will.
