creating a group in AD for permissions on a shared folder

I created a group called "group1" in AD. I added a couple of users to this group by adding them into the "members" tab. I then added this group to a shared folder in the security tab on my file server and gave the group full Administrative rights; under the sharing tab I have permissions set to "everyone" can change and read. Everyone in group1 is still not allowed to access this shared folder. What did I miss here? Users that are added to the security tab on the shared folder don't have this problems.

    have your users logged off and on since you created the group?  Changes to a users group membership require you to update the users access token by logoff/on or they won't get the new rights.
