NTFS Permissions

I have a user setup so they can only read certain folders and files. Is there a way to allow them to copy those files but not let them do anything else within the folders they can see like delete or run a file?

If you have the user setup with just Read access, they can copy the files out of that folder but cannot write/modify/delete/run a file.
Here is a link to tool that I use to see what my effective permissions are on my server.

Keep share the level access with read permissions and Keep the Security setting with read and write option would help you out

I tired it and it worked! This is what I thought so I guess something else must be wrong. We have internal programs that must not be working the way I think they are but thanks for the help everyone.
