We have a directory that has John Doe with full control on the security tab of the folder.  I went in to active directory and added a new group called "FullControlOfFolder" and then I add it to the folder with full control.  I then added John Smith to the group and took him out as an explicit entry on the folder security.

The issue I have is that John now needs to log off his computer then back on to apply the new group settings.  I was wondering if there was a short cut on how to do this while John was still logged in.

There's another way outlined here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Operating_Systems_Security/Q_28485742.html
But even less elegant.

Our users will not go for either option.  I will go back to just having them log off, seems so much faster and easer.
