Win7 Directory Security Settings Change FAIL

Client machine is Win 7 Pro joined to a domain.

User account is local, on the machine.

User is not admin (pc-hostname/username).

User needs to change security permissions on a directory containing applications residing in Program Files.

Here is what Im doing:

Right click on directory, choose properties.

Choose security tab.

Select EDIT

Select CREATOR OWNER

Choose FULL CONTROL in ALLOW

Notice that all checkboxes are selected.

Hit APPLY

ALL CHECKBOXES AUTOMATICALLY CLEAR

?? Why can I not change the security settings ??

?? How Do I change the security settings ??

Creator Owner always blanks out after hitting apply. Even on XP.....

If he is not the owner of the directory, and not an Admin, logon as an Admin, and set the permissions to the USERS group instead......
