Hello Ayushx, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This may be able to help you restore the Security tab if it was disabled. It's for Vista, but is the same in Windows 7.

Security Properties Tab - Restore or Remove - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn

ayushx,

Are you the administrator on your computer? And are there any other profiles on your computer? Also, what are your UAC settings? Are they on or off?

Let us know,
Ben

Looks like you have removed all rights for all users (even read access).
Can you do a system restore to some time before you unchecked all.

Ok,
I would suggest that you shut UAC off (personal opinion, but you dont necessarily have to) Heres how:
1. Open the Control Panel (All Items View).

2. Click on the User Accounts icon.

3. Click on the Change User Account Control settings link. (See screenshot below)

4. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes to approve.

5. Adjust the slider to the level of protection of how much you want to be notified from UAC.

6. Click on OK when done.

Does this help you at all?
Also, thanks brink for the wonderful tutorial!

Ayushx,

In your GPEDIT screenshot in the middle above, set that to Not Configured instead of Disabled to see if that may help.

UPDATE:
If not, then you might also search in the registry using Find and Find Next for NoSecurityTab, and delete any any found for it.

I have been unable to duplicate your situation. Can you state exactly what you changed on the security tab to cause the problem?
