Hi Darren,
Thank you kindly for your reply. Let me start by apologising for the confusion. 
I will give you some background info so that you can get a better idea about 
what is going on. 
I have been using a small network for a development lab for a consulting 
business that I have been running for many years. I am the only one using the 
servers and PC's on the internal domain which is isolated from the Internet. I 
have recently moved continents for an opportunity which looks like it will 
become a permanent job, meaning that I have had to close down my network as 
well as the company. 
The servers are shut-down and stored out of range from where I am using a 
notebook that used to be connected to the domain. I can logon locally with 
Domain Admin or Built-in local Admin accounts.
The problem is that the effective rights are overriding any attempts to give 
full permissions to the folders in question. I know that this is by design, I 
guess I am hoping that there is a way to disconnect this machine from the now 
defunct domain without a wipe and load. I have a feeling that I am just putting 
off the inevitable!
Sincerely,
Octai
