Assuming you give Domain Users, Domain Admins, or Users permissions,
just REMOVE the Everyone entry. DO NOT SET EVERYONE TO NO PERMISSIONS.
NT uses C3 security which is "least negative, greatest positive" in that
order. If you set Everyone to none, that is the least negative for,
everyone, and therefore, you just locked everyone out of the files.
