I have a security group in the NTFS permission of "netlogon" share. I can't remove it because it is inherinting from a parent object. The problem is I can't find the parent object. The parent folder of "netlogon" folder does not have this security group. I can uncheck the inheritable permissions box and delete the group but I am afraid it might create any issues since this is a DC and Sysvol folder replicate to all DCs.

You can try and solve it in several ways.

First of all did you try and check if the C$ or any other share on the C:\ drive contains permissions for this group?

Make a backup of the folder so in case of failure you can restore everything and, above all, the permissions.
After having created the backup uncheck the propagation and select to KEEP existing permissions so you can delete the wrong one.

Another option may be to set explicit permission on the NETLOGON folder in order to DENY access to the given group.
