No, it shouldn't.Unfortunately there hasn't been any change, does the computer need to be rebooted afterwards? Have you got any other ideas?
Unless I've overlooked something, no I don't have any other ideas at this point. Sorry.
I wonder if my issue could be that the users folder is "shared"
I've found some information and uploaded some screenshots. I haven't applied the changes yet as I'll wait for another opinion even though it seems like a likely possibility...

That sounds like the problem. Normally, you wouldn't share the entire users folder.
Now it's a matter of working out how to set this all back to normal as there are a multitude of places to edit the permissions within the user folder properties...
There are similar instructions here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-to-reset-all-user-permissions-to-default/9da312d2-c99b-4283-a275-e74d93dcc366?auth=1
backup admin account that if your primary one broke it might lock you out of your computer?
No. If you change the installation destination folder then the batch file needs to be edited accordingly.Was I by any chance meant to install the subinacl tool to C:\Windows\System32?
Have you removed the share from the "users" folder ?
No because I'm unsure about from where exactly to do it. You've got options to make permission changes from the "Sharing" or the "security" tabs. Not knowing why my permissions have ended up this way in the first place I'm quite confused and worried that if change something incorrectly that it will either break something or defeat the purpose of creating a standard user account for another layer of security in the first place.
Interestingly our laptop has the same issue so I can't help but think that this was caused by the creation of a Homegroup? I've also noticed that the laptop is using a Public network so how it could connect to a Homegroup in the first place I didn't think that was possible?
It's possible these "shared" permissions are affecting other folders as well. Should the standard user be able to access the Windows folder?
