XP security defaults to lockout

by DrDean In reply to Win200 and WinXP

To open up security on XP Pro, go to Win Explorer and select Tools>Folder Options>
View and go to the bottom of the Advanced list and uncheck Simple File Sharing.
This will make a Security Tab appear on folder Properties. Add Everyone to the security list if necessary and turn on Read and/or Write.
XP has two "special" folders which it REALLY protects: Program Files and Windows. You can turn off Read Only but XP puts it right back!
