For some odd reason I have a user that when the person clicks on All site content on a sub-site it goes to root. The user has Internet Explorer 9 and doesn't seem to be affecting the other users. The user has Full Control of SharePoint.

Most likely permissions related. You can also tell the user to navigate to root/subsite/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx and check if the same thing occurs which will definitley point to permissions issue – Fox Aug 3 '12 at 13:07
If the user goes to root/subsite/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx, eventhough it shows up in the address bar correctly, the user sees the contents of the root site. Like I said, the user is in the owner group which has full control of the root and all sub sites, since they are inherited. – Rick Aug 3 '12 at 13:15
do you have a custom masterpage? – Mike Aug 3 '12 at 13:34
I am using the default v4.master page. – Rick Aug 3 '12 at 13:38
Mmmmmm, sound like a job for Fiddler !!!( Install this guy on the user's machine, hit the link and give us the output. – Fox Aug 3 '12 at 13:53

I added the local IP in the Alternate Access Mapping and it seems to be working fine now, even though the user never enters the IP to enter.
