Security tab is available only to Administrator or users with administrative
rights. So make sure you login as one. And security can only be set in an
NTFS partition. If you’re still having problem to reveal or display the Security
tab on files or folder properties, check out the following registry hack and set
the value to 0 or simply delete the key:
Key: Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Name: Nosecuritytab
Value: 1
If you’re using a Windows XP Professional system that is installed in a
Workgroup, the Security tab is also hidden by default because in Windows XP
Home Edition and Windows XP Professional, guests are forced to log on to a
workgroup. Follow the instruction and information on Microsoft Knowledge
Base where you need to set the value for ForceGuest registry key.
