OK, you can find that if you go to Start, Run, type gpedit.msc and press OK. In the window which appears, drill down to Computer Config, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, Security Options. You will find the network access:sharing security model for local accounts policy listed there.

Click Start-->Run
Click secpol.msc

The Security policy console will open and you can change the settings you want to control.

You probably won't be able to run that software on XP Home. XP home isn't meant for use in a business environment. You also can't add it to an Active Directory domain for that reason. I suggest you upgrade to either XP Pro or XP Media Center which is essentially the same as XP Pro with added multimedia functions, but for less cost..

Your policy "sharing security model for local accounts" is also possible to be altered using the registry - but only in xp pro, no way in home. The option is called forceguest and the correct value (that enables "classic") is 0. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/906574.mspx
You need xp pro.
