Access denied to folders in My Documents

I have a user that originally had local admin rights. I removed her from the admin group and made her a "user". Since removing her from the local admin group, she is unable to access her folders in her My Documents folder. I am puzzled why her not her being a local admin should deny her access to the folders if she is still logging on as herself. When I checked the security properties of the folders, it still shows her having Full Control. I even added her to the power users group, still access denied. I added back to the Admin group, then changed the ownership to her username, then removed her from the admin group, still access denied. This is weird, if I add her back to the local admin group, she can access the folders. Operating system is XP with SP3 on a server 2012 domain.

I would create a new profile for the user that migrate her files to the new user, then see if she can access her files. something in the profile may be corrupted.  Log on as administrator rename her profile as user_old, then create a new profile for the user.... Then migrate her data to her newly created profile.
