    I have used win2k for a couple years and had no problem figuring out how to add/remove access to drives/folders...

    However since going to win XP pro I cannot figure out how to remove access to a limited user in certain locations on my computer.

    For Example. The security tab is completely different.. It does give a great option of making this folder ONLY available to u however it does not give me an option to click it on.

    All my partitions are NTFS so that isn't going to be the cause.

    Anybody have any kind of site gives info on an XP setup... Basic guide all I really looking for.

    Take a look at the information about file sharing and permissions on this page.

    Turning off Simple File Share will enable all the options on the Security tab.
