We installed windows updates on server 2008 R2 with SharePoint 2010. Everyone has their assigned permission but no one can upload or modify intranet. When we are trying to modify it give us read only access but when we are checking the actual permission we have admin privileges..

Click on any of the available SharePoint permission levels (for example – Contribute). Another screen will open up and there you can see granular options that explain what that given level can do. They are grouped by categories (i.e. permission for a site, permissions for a list, etc.).

Changing SharePoint permission levels is pretty straightforward – just check or uncheck boxes next to actions and you are done. What that means is that you can create your own business-specific permission levels.

Read this article before changing default permission level.

Do not break inheritance to child objects. Check group permissions...

Please check Central Admin >Application Management>Policy for Web Application, check if the user has added to the Global Security Policy which is an override for all other permissions. If the user’s permission is denying write, he cannot upload the file.

Since you did an upgrade it sounds as if your content database is in read only mode. The easiest way to check is to go through Central Administration.

Central Administration --> Manage Content Databases --> select the web app, shown in the upper right side --> click on the content database, in the left hand column --> A new page with Database Information will appear and the database status will be shown on the right hand side.

There are other ways to check the status of the database, but this is a good start.

Another possibility is that SharePoint is in the middle of updating and needs to have the configuration wizard run.

Keep in mind, SharePoint permissions will not change on their own because of a Windows update. Never say never, but it just doesn't happen.

Hope that helps...

There are viable solutions to the issue. The original poster may not have been able to recognize or follow the solutions, but they are valid. The points should be distributed evenly to all that offered assistance on this "High Priority" issue.
