Problem in samba(Folder Permission)

Dear All Great Linuxians,
Good Day,
I am using RHEL 3 and samba/squid/nis is running well at the moment.
but the problem has occured when I logged(to samba) using a account through a windows machine and there I did copy and paste some folders and files.

Now when I login using this account all the things are running well but the old files are not writable/updatable.
It is giving error that "Folder is readonly".

So now please help me to resolve this problem.and also in future directories and files this error should not come.

please guide me.

my smb.conf file is look like...

#Samba Domain Control

#;basic server settings
workgroup =
server string = ITM_Bhilwara
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
wins support = yes

#;PDC and master browser settings
os level = 64
preferred master = yes
local master = yes
domain master = yes
domain logons = yes

#;security and logging settings
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
log level = 2
max log size = 50
hosts allow =
#interfaces = eth1

#;user profiles and home directory
logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
logon script = netlogon.bat #our mount drives scripts

# ==== shares ====

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writeable = yes

path = /home/samba/profiles
profile acls = yes
writeable = yes
browseable = no
guest ok = yes

comment = Network Logon Service
path = /home/netlogon
guest ok = yes
share modes = no

comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

end of smb.conf file.

Thanks All,
