    If you have xp home, then the only way to see the security tab is in safe mode, restart pc and tap F8 repeatedly until the boot menu appears, scroll up with the arrow keys until safemode is highlighted and press enter.

    in safe mode, you should log in as administrator, go to program files on the c: drive, and right click on Dropbox folder, choose properties, in the security tab remove any users that you do not want to have access. restart pc.
