edit: Basically this is an issue with ACLs and having the + sign on the end of the folders permissions. Read down for the solution. ____ Something has gone a miss on my computer and has led to a weird situation where on a large number of folders the user permissions are doubled As you can see from the picture above, I have full access to the folders and appear twice. I can not delete either of those entires from the list. When I try and delete such folders it asks for my admin password. If I try and move the folder it copies rather than moves it. No files I have come across at this stage have the same odd permissions.
