Security tab missing

By Sue T ·
We are running Windows XP professional with sp2 and a setting must have gotten changed on some of them because on some of the computers when you right click on the folder the security tab is missing. How do I get the security tab back?

This sounds like simple file sharing is enabled. Just open My Computer or a windows explorer window and goto Tools-->Folder Options-->View(TAB) Scroll to the bottom and disable(uncheck) use simple file sharing.

If this is already set correctly then there could be a restriction in place. You would need to check group policies for that.

Poster rated this answer. Thank you. My brain must have gone on vacation and unfortunately forgot to take the rest of me along.
