    Security Pane Of Properties Windows

    When I open the Security pane of a program's Properties page the Allow column is very difficult to see-it is almost grayed out. This has just started to happen and I have no ideaa why.

    If anyone can explain this I would be grateful.

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy

    I believe it's an NTFS thing: a gray check indicates that a permission is inherited from a folder above; it will only be normal (bolder) if explicitly set for that particular file or folder.
