I have both Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 on different partitions on my hard drive.

There is a ntfs partition accessible to the two OSes. Under Ubuntu 12.04, how can I make the ntfs partition read-only for Windows 7, to protect it from being overwritten under Windows 7 after rebooting into Windows 7?
