This question already has an answer here:
I think I'm going crazy. Every time I create a folder it automatically is set to readonly, but I can still then rename the folder or add folders to it. If I attempt to uncheck the readonly flag it becomes checked again when I next open the folder properties. What the heck? Could my IT dept really have set up a policy like this somehow? If so, how?
Seems crazy that Windows would even do this -- no errors when I uncheck read-only and hit ok but the change fails.
Also, it is the halfway checked state -- greyed out and checked, but uncheckable.
