Shared folder loses Sharing and Security tab

This issue happened on a Windows XP professional desktop machine:
When the Mcafee Antivirus found a Conflicker virus on the users PC and disabled the sharing and security folder; When the machine was rebooted the tabs came back but when the virus was rediscovered the same behaviour occurred: the folder loses the Sharing and Security tab; The solution was to disable the Buffer Overflow Protection feature available on the Mcafee console and also run the scan in safe mode after disabling system restore;
When the virus was removed the folder no longer presented the mosterious disappearance of the Sharing and security tab!
Interesting issue.
