SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Like the title describes I have a user who is assigned full permissions but when I click on on the user groups I get a permissions error "You do not have permission to view the membership of the group".

This is probably due to the group being owned by a singular person. Check the group settings for the ownership and change it to the site/collection owner group preferrably so any owners can manage the group.

That's a good suggestion, but the specific user could normally access that in the past, I'll have a look but I don't think that's the problem. –  Harry May 24 '12 at 14:55

Go to:

Site Actions -> Site Settings -> People and Groups -> [From the list of the left, select the group which you want] -> Settings -> Group Settings -> Make sure that "Who can view the membership of the group?" is set to "Everyone" -> Make sure that "Who can edit the membership of the group?" is set to "Group Members"
