Please try a few things:

1)   Check the parent folder.  Do you have a combination of Allow and Deny entries in permissions?  Remember that Deny permissions take precedence.
2)   On the folder(s) in question, try removing inheritable permissions and then set Administrators to full control.  Add additional groups/users as necessary, one at a time.
3)   If this resolves the issue, you may have to manually reset permissions starting a the top-most folder that is unaffected so that your inheritable permissions start working correctly again.

Let us know if this was helpful, otherwise we can try something else.  Good luck!

At this point, I would think that you need to start from the root folder and reset the default permissions and any custom permissions.  Then allow those to inherit.  From there drill down to the other folders, taking a top-down approach, and set as many inheritable permissions as possible, propagating at each step, and setting manual permissions only where necessary.

I've usually only seen this happen when the owner is set incorrectly on high-level and/or root folders.  What is the owner on your root (C:\) folder, for example?  Also, is this affecting ALL folders or just folders under a particular folder -- for example, everything C:\Users or C:\SomeFolder, etc.?

By the way, you *may* want to start a new question or ask if you can un-accept the previous answer.  Otherwise, other experts may not see this question since it's already marked as answered.  Perhaps ask the admins how to best proceed?
