On my own XP laptop, when I use the shortcut menu (right click) to access properties or sharing and security on a folder (directory), nothing comes up.  It works on application icons, documents, etc., but not on folders (directories) that are housed on my laptop.  I am logged in as an administrator, I have domain administrator priviledges, I belong to the administrators group on the laptop, I have full security access to my C drive.  What am I not doing right?
