hey there , i'm using xp home edition and i'm trying to set permissions on some files , unfortunately when i go to folder options i don't have the "use simple file sharing" option and when i go to the file properties i don't have the security tab , i tried to boot in safe mode there i have the security tab and i've set full permissions on the file but when boot back in normal mode i got the same error "please check that you have the right permissions ..." , is there a way to make a shortcut to that file (not folder) and run it as a privileged user without asking the password ?

    In XP Home Edition you never can disable simple file sharing  
    1.Microsoft said that "Note You cannot turn off simple file sharing in Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.";en-us;307874

    Q: you said "when boot back in normal mode i got the same error "please check that you have the right permissions ..." what is the action that gnerated this error message ?

    A tool for setting the permissions like in XP Pro:

    It adds the security tab at the property page of file system objects. Probably that will help you to troubleshoot your problem...
