Network files will only open as read only

We recently unshared two network shares that provide our users with group and personal directories due to the threat of a virus.  The domain is 2003, and the file server is 2003.  

When the threat was resolved and we shared the two directories again, we began having an issue with all of the file opening as "read only".  I have checked the permissions multiple times and it seems that they sould be fine.  Any ideas?

I had a virus go though and mark all my shares as read only.

make sure the file isn't marked as read only

if it is try this:
attr -r -s /d /s d:\data

Also verify that if they are network shares that you check the Sharing properties of the folder and make sure that users have modify/full control of the files.  The default setting to share a folder is read only.

What lilshooter said.  Windows shares when recreated are automatically Read-Only.  The files may have NTFS permissions set properly, but the most restrictive wins and share permissions are often forgotten about.

The attached image shows the DEFAULT share permissions - not the tab is Sharing and NOT Security.
