no i cant get this section Enabling the Security Tab in Windows XP
Like most other useful functions, the Security tab is not easy to find in the default Windows XP user interface. To enable the tab:

Open any Windows Explorer window.
From the Tools menu, select Folder Options.
Select the View tab.
Scroll down the list of Advanced Settings (sic) and unselect the option Use simple file sharng (Recommended).

The Security tab is available in XP Home, but only when in Safe Mode.

So boot into safe mode and voila.
