There are some tools from Microsoft Sysinternals that may help

AccessChk
This tool shows you the accesses the user or group you specify has to files, Registry keys or Windows services.
 
AccessEnum
This simple yet powerful security tool shows you who has what access to directories, files and Registry keys on your systems. Use it to find holes in your permissions.
