File Sharing with Windows 7 PC on domain

We are in a domain environment with one server, about 10 PCs. Users of every PC are able to access network drives without trouble, except for those on one computer.

Any time the user tries to access shares in one specific SubFolder, they are given an "access denied" message. I have removed all antivirus from the computer, and made sure the firewall is off, and network sharing...etc is enabled. There is nothing involving security/access denied in either the server or computer logs.

I'm able to create a new shared folder with identical permissions, and the user can access the data just fine.

Any tips on where to look now?

To add to this:

The user is able to log onto other PCs and access network shares.

If I log on as domain admin/any other account on the problem computer, the same message/errors come up.

run RSoP
resultant set of policy
see if their are any local PC policies impacting this PC

Have you checked whether that subfolder's permission is set using any 3rd party tool?

Ran RSoP, didn't see any local policies in place.

The permissions were set with all built-in windows server features. Also, the user is able to log on to other PCs and can access the shared directories just fine, so it doesn't appear to be a shared folder permissions issue.

Can you please check whether a computer$ account is added in the permission for both security and sharing? If yes, it seems to be a deny permission which is set.

if you still face problem, please get a screen shot of the permissions and upload.

No computer$ account.

Attached are two screenshots of security/sharing for the folder in question.

I believe your domain name is PCG and Users is a group where permission is set as Reas and Execute. Surprisingly I think there is object set as I can see the scroll bar in the right side.

Can you check that and let me know?

Here's an updated screenshot so you can see everything better.

I would suggest to disjoin the problem computer from the domain-> rename the computer and join to the domain again and check if the problem persists.

Also try to access the share with the server IP address once.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I renamed the computer & removed it from the domain, then rejoined the PC to the domain.

Same problem exists - can't access specific network shares from any account (the domain admin account, the user accounts...etc).

I'd have preferred not to have to do this, but it solved the problem.
