By default, the Simple File Sharing UI is turned on in Windows XP Professional-based computers that are joined to a workgroup. Windows XP Professional-based computers that are joined to a domain use only the classic file sharing and security interface. When you use the Simple File Sharing UI (that is located in the folder's properties), both share and file permissions are configured.

First, verify that the file or folder that you want to apply permissions to is an NTFS drive. The file system is listed in the Windows Explorer if you right-click on the drive and choose Properties. You can set permissions only on drives that are formatted to use the NTFS file system.

By default, Simplified Sharing is enabled in Windows XP unless you are on a domain. This hides the Security tab.

To turn Simple File Sharing off in Windows XP Professional, follow these steps:

1. Double-click My Computer on the desktop.
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
3. Click the View tab, and then unselect the Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended) check box (clearing this check box turns off this feature).

If however the above does not solve the issue, Please check the following registry entry.

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Name: NoSecurityTab
Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)
