Can't see NTFS Security tab on XP client

I have seen that this case was very often a problem. But i couldn't find any solution for my case.
My systems:
2003 AD
W2k3 Fileserver NTFS
Windows XP SP 2 Professional clients
I made shares on fileservers with permissions for some users (Full). This users should control some folders in this directories semselfs. User want to give permissions. ( Ok, this is only as an exception )  But this users get no security tab. ( I have already checked options in explorer ) I haven't found any GPO settings.
Any idea ?

Group policy does have many options to lock down the Windows Explorer.  You can test if it is locked by "user configuration" part of group policy by logging onto the XP with a local account, and see if you can get the "security" tab.

there is no way to you can bypass the group policy if it is set from "computer configuration" part, unless you disjoin the computer from the domain.
Did you turn off the "simple fie sharing" on Windows XP?

1. open "My computer" from Windows XP, go to "tools" menu -> "folder options"
2. go to "view" tab
3. in the "advanced settings" section, scroll down to the last item "use simple file sharing"
4. uncheck it
5. OK to quit

Now you should be able to see the "security" tab from any folder / file properties.

But now i have found this entry !!!  We have 12 different policies in effect for our users and computers.

Thank you for you support
