Start Menu subfolders not visible for restricted users

All that about vista 32bits business installation.

All users have to be permitted to access some folder in the start menu.
Physically this folder placed in c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu......

Read access privileges granted to all users, for elements in this
directory and that folder:
that folder-> properties-> security tab

However following attempt fails always:
that folder-> properties-> security tab -> advanced button -> edit
button (the option "current inheritable privileges of child objects with
inheritable privileges of this object to be replaced " is not checked)
-> checking this option -> apply button -> option gets unchecked again.

Why must it be so ?

What is missing for this folder to be visible for all users ?

Thanks for help.
I will try this.

By the way, Vista introduces significant innovations regarding
system folders, their names, placement and number.

What is the best document/manual for read to get familiarized
with Vista system folders ?

No help, still the same. Have also tried to place it in the profile
of that user who needs this access. No success.
The issue that applying access privileges for all sub-objects fails
after pushing the apply button repeats in this situation.


If
C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
was better for this purpose why isn't Vista placing here all
application invokers ?

What's the difference between

C:\Users\****\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
and
c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu......
from Microsoft's point of view ?

What is the former, and what is the latter best for ?
