Are you talking about the Security Menu at the top or the Folder or Key that says Security?  You will not be able to access the Security Key unless you use regedit.

No, I think you're not logged in as a local admin.  Be sure your account is a member of the LOCAL ADMINISTRATORS group.

BTW, the statement:

"not be able to access the Security Key unless you use regedit."

is incorrect.  REGEDIT in Windows 2000 has NO security editing capabilities.  You must use REGEDT32 to edit key or value security settings.

jhance,

I was talking about the actual key. Not the menu that changes the actual security settings.

If you were a local administrator of the workstation, the security menu would NOT be disabled.

Try logging in as administrator instead of whatever account you are currently using.

and try it out.
