Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I ahve a problem with seems like favorites in the profile of 2 users. a file in their profile keeps loosing all permissions or attributes. I have even went into the SYSTEM account to try to delete this file so to get their profiles working but I cannot even delete it from there.

When I right click on it and go to properties the security and owner tabs don't even show up.

Any  ideas?
