Have you tried this tutorial?

Security Tab - Add or Remove from Properties
Thanks, but I figured out the problem - the hard disk was FAT32, and the Security tab is only an option on NFTS. The "Use Simple File Sharing" is the same as "Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)" after all.

The steps I took to resolve this are as follows:
  1. Open regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers
  3. Add a new key with the name below:

    {1F2E5C40-9550-11CE-99D2-00AA006E086C}
After doing this, the security tab should appear.

A .reg file has been attached.

Thanks a lot for this!.
