My query is this. Is it possible to get administrative features such as
changing security permissions on XP Home. Could i also set user specific
permissions for file sharing ie full access for Admins and read only for
users etc

More about : permissions

It is not possible to access Simple File Sharing checkbox to allow user
specific permissions to be set - are there any other ways because I don't
think you can create Power Users or Backup Operators in XP Home

Please help

XP Home is really limited, have a look at...

No. The Power Users group doesn't exist on WINDOWS XP Home Edition.

Backup Operators, Power Users, and Replicator groups from Windows 2000/XP
Pro are missing from Home Edition.

Local Users and Groups will popup an error in XP Home.

[[In Windows XP Home Edition, the Computer Management snap-in does not
display the Local Users and Groups node. The Local Users and Groups snap-in
cannot be added to a custom snap-in. This behavior is a limitation of
Windows XP Home Edition. It is not caused by Simple File Sharing.]]

[[The userpasswords2 applet should not be used on WINDOWS XP Home Edition as
a tool to edit or modify users. It is reserved for WINDOWS XP Professional
Edition. The reason for this is that userpasswords2 allows the user to
access to the 'Power Users' group which doesn't exist on WINDOWS XP Home
Edition.]]

You can do an Upgrade from Windows XP Home Edition to Windows XP
Professional.

It is best to save any data that you do not want to lose, just in case. You
never know if you might have a power outage while you are upgrading, for
example.

If your computer came with Windows XP preinstalled by a computer
manufacturer, see this article...

Upgrading Windows XP
