Very odd permissions issues

Hello,

I have a 2008 SBS server that seems to be having a number of odd permissions issues all of a sudden. No changes were made recently. Some of the symptoms I'm seeing are:

1. A user downloads a file from the Internet to a network drive. The file is inaccessible because the permissions/owner are unknown. Taking ownership fixes this.

2. A program installed via the Domain Administrator account today created two folders that are necessary to the program. I could see them from the server and run the program, but workstations could not. Checking the permissions brought up an error that "No Permissions" had been assigned. I added permissions and they were visible to the network.

3. I am no longer able to connect via RDP from Win7, but can from a 2003 server. I'm guessing that's more certificate related but figured I'd mention it.

The odd this is that all else seems to be functioning normally, there are no Active Directory related errors, DCDIAG passes, and everything looks as it should in the network settings.

Not sure where to even start with such an odd problem, so any advice is appreciated.

Is this a permission Inheritance issue with a root folder or share? Have you checked the event logs on the machines in question to see if there are any errors that may be related?
