Adding the system to the share won't help - all permissions on folders are user level.

If permissions are done at the group level (which they should be), I'd generally start troubleshooting by adding the user explicitely and giving them full control. (Obviously I remove this once I've fixed the problem). I also check that there are no 'deny' entries at all which might be causing the issue. Lastly, I go into the advanced options and click on the Effective Permissions tab and check to see exactly what permissions that user has (based off their group memberships). Also confirm that the share level security isn't the problem (I recommend giving everyone full control at the share level, and using file system level security to control all access).

None of that should help in your case though because you've tested from another PC with the same logon. That suggests something funky is going on with the original PC. I would go to a command prompt and type 'gpresult' (XP) or 'gpresult /r' (Win7) and check which security groups the user is a member of. Do they look right? Do they match the ones listed from the PC that works? If the share is accessed through a mapped network drive disconnect that drive then map it again. (I had the exact same problem as you last week and this fixed it). Finally, check out the event log. There's a good chance the computer isn't communicating with the domain properly and that is causing the issue.
