IN F8 SAFE MODE once in there look at the properties
of all drives and folders you will see a new tab on the window SECURITY this is where all security starts for ANY WINDOWS OS while your there you also may want to
password PROTECT the ADMINISTRATOR account
as soon as the computer boots up use the f8 key after post and then chose SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING so you can test any changes you make to your drives and folders
I have several PCs (in a LAN) with WinXP Pro (SP2). I'm using simple file sharing.
Up to now everything has gone ok, but I have included recently another HDD (as slave) in order to recover some data. I had to disable simple file sharing to be able to change file permisions on that data because if not, I could not even copy them to any location. Once I changed file permisions, I could recover this data. I restored simple file sharing mode and restarted windows (with the new HDD already removed).
The simple file sharing modification was only in the PC used to recover my data.
The problem came when I tried to access shared files in other PCs from this PC (the one I used to recover my data). I'm trying to open a shared access database (XP) and I get the next messages:
- When I try to open it, Windows asks me if I want to open the file and says that the file comes from an unknown manufacturer.
- I say 'Open' and then ACCESS says that it cannot open the file because it is ouside the Intranet or in an unsecure place.
Please ! any help?
Thanks in advance
