This is a toughy. I had a user mess up her folder permission by chaning the owner of the folder. I corrected the owner by putting the local madhine\administrators, but she is having an issue where everything in the C drive is read-only and the check box mark keeps coming back even when unchecked. I saw a post about the attrib command, but that did not work. Another weird thing is that even I see that the user has security permission, when I try to copy that file, it stated "access denied". Any suggestions?
