He/you needs to take ownership of the user folder.

Is this XP or Vista?

Here's some instructions, the process differs a wee bit between operating system but this will give you the basic idea.
It's very important to make sure the *Replace owner on subcontainers and objects * box is ticked when taking ownership.

You probably need to take ownership of the folder.

Untick simple file sharing under tools / options / view in my computer, then the security tab will appear
