permissions to shared folders on Windows 2003

I have a windows 2003 server set up with a main folder and then under that shared folders for each department. When I set it up so that only people in the department should see their folders , when I test it on another account, they too can get into the folder and files.
I am not sure how to change this

The permissions set are :
Shared, permissions to 2 people, Full, Change and read
Security, 2 people, all permissions ticked
I have attached the folder that I have only shared to 2 people and attached the folder settings for the main folder, Dept_HR is a subfolder of the main folder

I have given permission only to the department group, added 2 individual users, taken everyone out now the department that needed it and the 2 users can get into it but not open any files. I have even added myself to see if I can get in and I can only read the files not open them
Attached File is the screen shots of how it is set up now
