Not sure, but this might be one of the methods that must be run with admin
rights - what user  are you running under, and does that user have admin rights
on the server?

The user  is not an Admin. The CheckPermissions() method  is used to check the
permissions of the current logged in User. If this method needs admin rights to
function properly, then no point in using this method, since admin has
permissions to all of the data on the portal

This is known problem with SharePoint:


There are many blogs out there that have a few different type of
workarounds (impersonation of the app pool without credentials, etc.) so
check on Google for them. I haven't figured out which one works in all
situations (and not sure if there is one).
