I'm not sure how to actually approach this question.
I have a Sharepoint user who is pretty savvy yet she still seems to delete herself from groups or remove her permissions.
I had to remove her permissions and then add them back.  She had full control but had messed things up enough that removing permissions and adding them back was the best recourse.
Now she's having problems adding group permissions to her site even though she has full control.
My question is two-fold.  How can I make sure she has full control permission
And - how can I remove a "limited access" permission?
I believe the limited access is a site level permission because I've removed her from any group that has limited access.
I don't remember how to tweak the site level (parent level) permissions - the ones granted as the site is created.  I know there's a way to get back and edit those, I just don't remember.

1. Navigate to the Site she should have access to
2. Open the Site Actions menu, select  Site Settings
3. Click on Site permissions
4. Ensure that there is a group that has Full Control (by default should be Home Owners)
5. Ensure that she is added to that group

Even if the user is listed on the permission page and only has limited access as long as she is in a group with a higher level of access she will have that level of access.

Perhaps if the issue persists you may want to move her down to just read, write control for content until she gains more experience with SharePoint.

I actually looked at all the groups she was a member of and found one that was just "limited access" (not contribute, limited access etc)
I removed her from that group and she is now able to do what she needs to do
