I am using Windows XP Professional SP2 and am logging on with an administrator account.

When I right click on any folder and choose Properties I am unable to see the "Security" and "Customize" tabs. How can I enable these tabs?

Did you format your HDD in NTFS or FAT32?

FAT32 doesn't have that feature so NTFS does.

Also, you can enable the simple sharing:
