    neshter, why is your question posted in the GPO forum??

      Means you do not have the permissions to view that............If you are admin you can force the permissions from the parent folder i.e. INF

          I notice you edited your question.
          Can we assume that you are using the edition: Windows XP Professional?

              Is you computer client in a Domain?
              Could it be the tab is hidden by a policy?

              Are you logged on with an account that is member of the local group Administrators? Have you tried an other account?

              Have you googled for "missing security tab", and?

                Re: usbstor.inf

                Have you disabled simple file sharing?

                If not goto Control Panel..Folder Options...View

                The bottom option in Advanced Settings in Simple File Sharing (Recomended) untick this.

                If you can't get to the above it is likely you are restricted by policy and in a domain in which case that will be the reason you cannot access the security tab.

                  It's because you hard drive isn't NTFS formatted. The security tab deals with NTFS permissions. Right click you drive and select properties. This should then tell you if it's NTFS or FAT32. If it's FAT32 follow the instructions on this link:

                  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...chNet.10).aspx

                  Once this is completed, you will then see 'security' tab for your files and folders.
