Are you a computer administrator?

Do the following to enable advanced file sharing and access to the sharing and security tab: My Computer- tools- folder options- view tab- scroll to the bottom and uncheck "Use simple File Sharing (recommended)"

Now, check to see if the sharing/security tab is available.
