    Default XP by default...

    ...uses a too-simplistic file protection scheme.<BR><BR>Bring up My Computer.<BR>Click on Tools.<BR>Click on Folder Options.<BR>Click on the View tab.<BR>*UNCHECK* the box "Use simple file sharing (recommended)" [Yeah, really.]<BR><BR>Say OK to exit the dialog.<BR><BR>*NOW* go to any file or folder and view its properties.<BR>You should now have a new Tab added to the properties dialog: "Security".<BR><BR>From that tab you now have full control over how a file is shared with which users, including the ability to give full control to IUSR_xxxx (where xxxx is your computer name), the IIS and ASP user.<BR><BR>
