Try disabling simple file sharing if it's enabled.

Most likely you do not have sufficient security privelages to view security tab. Login as Admin.

Furthermore, make sure the account you are currently logged in as, is a local Admin account.

Goto Control Panel>Folder Options
Under the View tab, scroll down and uncheck "Use simple file sharing".
That should do the trick.
