Does anyone know?

When you right click your own 'user' name under Documents and Settings, and check the Properties, there are usually three tabs: General,Sharing and Customise. Well on one of my PCs, it has got another tab called Security. Does anyone know why that is the case?

I need this extra tab whenever i find that i am having difficulty in setting the sharing rights to other PCs in the network. Why is this tab not showning in the other PCs? Or how do you get this tab to show up?

Anyone know why?

Only XP Pro has the Security Tab.

If it's missing in Pro to enable it go to Local Security Policy, Local Policies, Security Options, Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts, then set the value to "Classic...."
