Run the "Fix it" here:


It may save you the trouble(with the security tab)
To show the Security Tab.
Open windows Explorer
Click on the Tools > Folder Options > View tab
In the Advanced Settings, uncheck the “Use simple file sharing (Recommended)” check box.

OR, IF XP Pro is installed in a Worgroup.
