How to Disable Simple File Sharing in Windows XP Home Edition Rockville Centre NY

Sometimes, you might want to change the security or permissions on a folder in Windows XP Home Edition. You will right click on the folder and select Properties, and under the Security tab you might expect to see something like you would see in Windows 2000 - a list of Users and checkboxes for Allow and Deny. However, you won't see this, because Windows XP uses something called "Simple File Sharing." You can disable it in XP Professional, but not XP Home. Windows XP Home Edition was not designed for high security networking. It was designed for standalone workstations and home based Workgroup configurations.Fear not, there is a way around this (even if it is tedious).
