Problem: How Do I Get the Security tab in Folder Properties?


First, your hard drive must be formatted NTFS for this tab to show up.

Second, if you're running XP Pro, you must open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View and uncheck Use Simple File Sharing.

WARNING:  Adjusting the permissions on a drive, file or folder can lock even the Administrator account out of that drive/file/folder.  Deny Permissions take precedence over Allow Permissions, regardless of your group membership.  Administrators are members of the User's group, by default.  Uncheck Allow, rather than using Deny

I'm running 2 frameworks 2.0 and 1.1. I had to do the following to switch to 1.1.In a dos prompt do the following:
cd c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727
aspnet_regiis.exe -u
cd c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322
aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Hope that helps someone. I have to do the opposite to go back to 2.0. I created bat files to do it. Kind of painful but it worked.
