Windows 7: Sharing directories among users

Sharing directories among users

Not wanting to surf as administrator I'm installing users.

It's faster and easier switching in Win 7 than it was in XP so the tech disincentive is not in the way.

However I'm trying to give myself access to certain directories and being stymied.

I navigate to the directory, click on properties, navigate to the Security tab and select the User name.
Then when I try to add the user I get the expected dialog box that informs me of the progress saying "This may take a few minutes"
How bloody colloquial huh?
Anyway, I have been letting this process percolate away for like 10 minutes and it still hasn't finished.

Am I doing something wrong?
