Please be sure if any disc encryption software is not doing this if not then following this process.

You need to take the ownership of the folder and then only can change the permission.

1. Log on as an administrator.
2. Right Click on the file and select properties.
3. Go to security Tab
4. Go to Advanced
5. Go to owner and Edit.

Once you have taken the ownership of the folder you will be able to change the permission. Looks like some security configuration has done this.
Make sure you dont have additional permissions restrictions....

Process Monitor

Save this to the root of C as an Admin, and login the problem user. Do a RunAs with your Admin Credentials to launch it, and then set the the filter at the top to Include "Result" is "Access Denied" then "Include", and then try and recreate the errors by launching the app. Then go look at the logging, and it will tell you where the permissions are restrictive. Once you open those up, keep retrying until you get the desired results....

Keep track of your changes, as they can be scripted to deploy to the other systems......
