If the user does not have full control, change permissions special
permission, or is not the owner of a file/folder they will not be able to
change permissions assuming that they are not local administrators. You
might be able to use Group Policy to hide the security tab but that will not
prevent users from changing permissions at the command line if they have the
ability to do such and know how to. For Group Policy look under user
configuration/administrative templates/Windows components/Windows Explorer -
hide the security tab. The links below may also be of help. --- Steve;en-us;193826
