Hello, I am having an issue where a users account (child object) is not inheriting permissions from its parent

Basically iI clicked on the security tab of a user's account properties in active directory...clicked on Advanced..and then checked the box for "Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propogate...............etc"

But the box keeps getting unchecked and removing the inheritable permissions (I am sure there is a policy reason or something for it but no idea where to look, and no one over here has any idea either)

Windows 2003 environment

Attached a screenshot, thanks

Who should I change the ownership to?
 
right now in the current owner of this item: (a user)  who is a domain admin
In the list for "change owner to"
My account (I am a domain admin)
and Administrators (domain/administration)
The user's account is not in the list

I checked some other accounts...and it seems the current owner is a different member of our IT group here, it varies from user to user

I think, you can move this account to another OU  if you dont want this user inheriting any permission from parent.

I need it to inherit permissions from its parents because it assigns the proper security groups, but the inherited permissions keep getting removed
