icacls permissions suddenly seems to change for certain workstations in domain

AD-domain on 2003-servers
Windows 7 workstations defined in AD
Users is logging on domain, and local non-admin rights

The last weeks I have stuggled with user-permissions on desktop and taskbar links (and other files too).
Issue havn't been reported at all before ca 4 weeks ago.

The user/workstation can run fine for a couple of days, the suddenly for only some users/workstations it seems  that the user-rights to desktop-links aso is changed.
The users are prompted for:

"Open File - Security Warning"

Seems to be related to the workstation, when the user logs on to an other the workstation, the Issue is not there.

Have read a lot of topics how to partly solve the Issue on relevant folders by t.ex:

C:\Users\Public\Desktop>ICACLS *.LNK /L /SETINTEGRITYLEVEL MED

which solve the Issue for actual shorcuts, but when users create a new shortcut, the Issue persists for this new shortcut.

I'll really like to find the Cause to this Issue, hope someone can guide me where to search.

Hi Santosh

Thanks for the reply.
Sorry doesn't seem to help (done it on both iexplore-64 and iexplore-32).

t.ex. when copying the link "Windows media player" from start-menu to desktop, and when clicking the desktop-shortcut the warning still comes up.

By the way, have You any Idea what can cause the changes to some workstations ?

Hi again Santosh.

Thank You, seems to solve the Issue.

Have investigated on the differences on users/workstations, which do or do not have the Issue.

A clue seems to be users/workstations, which have the Issue, can be users who have their "my documents" folder moved to a mapped network-share.
Does that seem reasonable ?

Ohh is this the case. yes it may.

try this solution.
•Go to Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Security -> Local Intranet -> Sites -> Advanced
•Add the mapped drive or UNC path (\\machine or network loccation)

Hi Santosh

Sorry for the late reply, have tested a lot, stopped by the Eastern hollidays, and tested further the last days.
Your last reply seems to solve the Issue for the users with Documents folder placed on a mapped network-share.
Had still a few users which havn't mapped their Documents-folder, but they are solved via changing the security-Policy.

So Issue seems to be solved, but still annoying that I don't know what causes the Issue.

Thank You very much for Your help
