    Setting permissions for a profile

    Sorry if this is a bit of a basic request but after this mornings little problems its an area I needed to revisit. I need to change permissions on a users profile as at the minute as an administrator I cannot view it or get in to change the ntusers.man to a dat. I have written down the instructions to follow from a previous attempt but after trying on a test profile I created although I can see the profile the user gets a permission error when trying to log on. The basic (yes very basic prompts!) I follow are below. Can anyone tell me what bit I have missed?

    Get properties on profile folder
    Security
    Click on Administrator - Advanced - Owner - Administrator (not administrators)
    Tick Replace Owner
    OK - Yes
    Apply - Exit properties
    Get properties on profile folder
    Security
    add "user" Full Control - Apply
    Advanced
    Permissions
    Select "user"
    Select Replace Permissions
    OK - Yes
    OK

    Got to be missing something somewhere, not a job I do very often thats why its written down but obviously missed something when I wrote it down!

    isn't there setting on the files to which you need to override by selecting 'replace permissions on child objects'???

    By default profile folders are checked for ownership of profile by the user.If this is the case then you need to change the ownership back to the original user. You can change this behaviour through Group Policy.

    That sound like its the bit I missed out, as its when the user is loading the profile I have problems now that I can browse the profile itself. I'll give it a go and update my"dummy's guide" to suit.
