Go to the main folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\Global Star Software\Mall Tycoon 2). Once you're there go to the folder labeled "data". Open Setup.bin with notepad and look for a line that says [TechTree]. I think the line comment explains it but just in case look below that. There should be a line that says "Enabled=#" The # takes place of a real number, probably 2. Change the number to 0.
Before you build anything you must first build "UNITS" after you build a floor. Then build a food court on the first floor in front of the door with a lot of security guards. The criminals will steal a little bit of money from the food court and they will be caught. Or if they get away it doesn't matter because the food court has barely any money. Also build different subject titles (shopping,sports etc.) on different levels.
If you don't want your mall to get robed, then set the robber bar all the way to the left so you don't see any gray in the bar. (Note: you can only do this at the beginning of the game when you are setting the stats for the game. I learned that the hard way.)
