    I am trying to create a folder where I have the only permissions. I am an
    administrator. I create the folder and it inherits all the permissions from
    the parent. It gives the Users group read and execute permission, which I do
    not want. I went in and unchecked the "inheritable permissions" box. The
    Users group then goes away from the advanced screen, but when I go back to
    the main properties page, they are still there. Then when I add any files or
    folders to this new folder, they inherit the "read and execute" Users group
    from the parent folder where I just removed the Users group. The only way I
    have figured out to get around this is to add a new Users group to the folder
    with deny permissions, which is supposed to override the allow permissions.
    Is there an easier way to do this? I should be able to create a folder and
    delete out any account I want to and have it propagate to the subfolders and
