RE: Accounts don't show up on security tab in properties
The file or folder in question may have been created before the new user came
around. If the account that you want to grant or deny access to is not on the
list, look at it's account type and the user will have the same rights as
'Administrators' or 'Users' do. If these aren't on the list, edit it and
simply create priviledges for the user. If it won't let you do that, you've
got another problem. Tell me if you need help with this.
Note: Some system files are protected by Windows and User Account Control
and permissions cannot be set or edited on them.
