Folks,

I have a Windows XP notebook. I logon to the machine using my
workdomain\workuserid. When I am home, I logon to just the notebook itself using notebookname\userb. Both the logins are member of local
administrators group. I am unable to open any pdf, text files created by
workdomain\workuserid when I am logged in as notebook\userb. I am able to rename the files and even delete them. I gave explicit FULL CONTROL permission of these files to notebook\userb, even then it did not work. I googled the issue and read up on Group Policy, which may have been set by my work domain. However, I am unable to find it.

Can someone please shed some light on this issue. I am very interested to know, why one user is unable to open these text files, for which he has full control.

Thanks.

By default, everything should work.

Having full control over a file/folder/object should allow view access.

Check all of the other tabs in the Security dialog box of the file in question. Also, inherited permissions might be applied to the location where you are saving the files. Deny entries always trump Allow permissions.

Have you tried saving the files somewhere else? Try saving it in the local users desktop.

If you suspect a policy is the cause of this behavior then use Resultant Set of Policy to view the cumulative policies that are being applied. It's easier to use GPRESULT (the command line version).
