Here is the issue that I am facing.  I am running a SBS 2003 machine with about 40 to 50 users.  I have ONE user that I cannot make any account changes for on the General, Address, Account and profile pages, they are grey scaled.  Above that issue I cannot make any Password changes from the server for her.  She has been successful making changes from her system, but of course if she ever leaves I want to be able to do it from the server.  I know that at one point she was part of the Administrators Group.  That might be a hint to someone.  

Thanks in advance.

I would use ADSIEDIT (very carefully), to make sure her account permissions include Inherited permissions as it sounds like a security issue, but not seen it happen before.

Download the Support Tools which includes ADSIEDIT (if you haven't already) and check the inheritance:
