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.
