Server 2008 folder permissions

I just set permissions for each user on the server. Last director did not require that each folder have set permissions so all folders were shared with everyone. New director has requested that each folder has permissions set for just that user.
Example:
UserA can only see FolderA
UserB can only see FolderB
UserC can only see FolderC
etc....
Once I did the sharing each user can now only see his/her own folder and can not see anyone else's. All is OK on each individual workstation except the one central workstation. There is one workstation that everyone shares up front. When they are on desk duty they login as themselves. When UserA logins in upfront she only sees FolderA and the same with UserB. When UserC logins in she can see and access everyone's folder.  When UserC goes back to her desk and logins in she only sees her folder. When she goes back up front to the central desk and logins she sees all folders.
Server is set up as AD and is Server 2008 standard. Workstations are all Windows 7 Pro.
Why is this and what do I do to fix it??
