To remove an inherited permission:

  1. Open Explorer (Windows + E) and locate the file or object to fix.
  2. Right-click on the item and select Properties.

  3. Click on the Security tab.
  4. In the same dialog, click on the Advanced button, near the bottom.
  5. In the Advanced Settings dialog, click on Change Permissions button.
  6. Un-check the option 'Include inheritable permissions from this objects parent'.
  7. Click OK on each dialog to clear all the property dialogs.

While this fixes the Inheritable permissions issue, you may get new errors as the permissions for the item may not be set for the access you need. If so, return to the steps above, but also change the permissions for the user that needs access.
