Can you make a screenshot so that we will better understand your issue?

It's possible that what you experience has to do with folder templates. All folders in Windows 7 are assigned to one template or other. When you change properties and click change all folders then you only change properties of all folders of the same template. The template can be changed in folder options -> customize.
