You will need to log in to safe mode to use the Security option. And Yes you must login to Admin. If you are on other Edition like XP Professional etc, then you can click on "Tools" menu in Explorer. Select "Folders Option" then click on "View" tab. In the "Advanced Settings" section at the bottom of the list, uncheck and unselect (clear the tick) on the “Use simple file sharing (Recommended)” check box Click "OK". Now you will get the Security tab when you check folders properties by right clicking. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
