I am attempting to set file permissions on a secondary computer, but from windows explorer when I right click on the folders or files, properties,...--- there is no security tab. How do I get the tab to return? Thanks

Great, if you don't mind being a guinea pig -- post your results and I just might install it myself :)

yes, I am extremely interested to hear how that patch works.....please post back with your feedback.

Should we fail to hear from you in a reasonable period of time, I will just assume that it didn't work too well. ;)

I know reply not quite so timely but.....Downloaded patch and received following error message..."Image file is valid but is for machine type other than the current". Hmmmmm!!
I dunno what that means other than I'm not using NT. Anyway, gave up and assumed twas failure, but for grins tried later to check permissions on a file and now am somehow able to view the security tab and set further allow/deny etc. something worked. don't know what! Thank you guys very much. Have a great day. :confused:

So inspite of the error message you are now able to view Security tabs in Normal mode on an XP HOME system?

I guess it worked then.
