A complete rewrite of my previous question, in a different context.
Basically, the issue is that when I create a new user within a new group, the new user has various permissions over various folders.
I have deleted the group "users" from this user object, and it is simply a member of the group "test".
I have created a folder called c:\foo, when I go to effective permissions under the security tab, I can see that the user "lockdown" has various permissions.
As far as I can see, there is nothing that should allow lockdown access.
The moment I remove users from this list, it behaves as I would expect, which makes me believe that for some strange reason, the users group behaves like the everyone group and is controlled by the system. That being said, I cannot understand this as under the list, it is not there - and further to this, with the same permissions as the first picture, guest does not have access.
This has stumped me and any help is appreciated!

edit - Should also say that if I go to Effective Permission for the group the user is in, there are no boxes checked, so it is somehow just the user that is getting the permissions from somewhere.
