Source: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/07/19/missing-or-no-security-tab-found-in-windows-xp-professional/

check out the following registry hack and set the value to 0 or simply delete the key:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Name: Nosecuritytab
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

Please try the following:

Click on Start>Run, then type the following in the Run box:

regsvr32 rshx32.dll

Press enter. Check to see if it appears now. If not, reboot and look again. That command will re-register a dll that is needed for that option to be available.

FLUBBSTER THIS WORKED FOR THE SECURITY TAB.  DO you have the  dll for the share tab?

Take a look at this reg key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{f81e9010-6ea4-11ce-a7ff-00aa003ca9f6}

Expand that key and it should have this:

"InProcServer32" folder (subkey), under that key.

Click on the above key and look at the right side for the entry. What does it say? Does that key exist?

Also, the ntshrui.dll on my system shows file version:
5.1.2600.5512 (xpsp.080413-2105)  (right-click the file, select properties, then version)

If your copy of the file is corrupted, you can get that message. Copy it from a working system with the same service pack. It is found in c:\windows\system32

Reboot after copying

One other thing, make sure that the Server Service is running.

Start>run
services.msc (enter)

Find "Server" service, and double-click the entry. What is the status? MIf it is stopped, click on start. Make sure startup type is set to "Automatic"

I took the file from another machine and installed it.  Rebooted the PC and still cannot see the share tab.
I tried to reregister the file and I am still getting DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.

Yes I unchecked the box and It is NTFS. There is another partition that is FAT32. This is HP Restore Partition.  It is the D:\ Drive.  The C drive still is missing the share tab.  Maybe I should reinstall?

Both keys can be imported to the registry using the text files with the ".reg" file extension.

Contents of file 1:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Sharing]
@="{f81e9010-6ea4-11ce-a7ff-00aa003ca9f6}"


Contents of file 2:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers\Sharing]
@="{f81e9010-6ea4-11ce-a7ff-00aa003ca9f6}"

When you create these 2 registry keys, the "Sharing" tab will appear in the drive properties

I have successully installed the keys but the tab is still missing.  This is crazy.  Is it possible that it could be a security policy that could be blocking it as a thought?
