    Default Networking, XP Pro and Security Settings

    Hi Guys

    Ok heres the problem recently loaded XP Pro on to a computer in my home network but are unable to connect to it.
    I believe i know how to get it to go. Under local security settings and user rights assignments; there is a policy called "Access this computer from network". When i try to add users to this though it comes up with an error saying "Failed to save security database".

    Anybody got any ideas on how to get passed this?

    Thanks
