Inherited Roles for Sites

I have a question about Inherited Roles for Sites.
My company has Liferay 6.1.1 tomcat bundle with Social Office 2.0 Community Edition.
I created a homepage called "lportal", there are several sites that were created from the "lportal" site, as a result of this hierarchy structure any user who is a member of a site created from the "lportal" homepage automatically inherits Administrator Permissions.
Users have more Permissions then they should, for example their control panel offers them the same level of access as the Administrator, anyone can view CONTROL PANEL Portal and Server.
Through troubleshooting steps, I have removed site memberships to the "lportal" and all sites created from the "lportal", and this removed ADMIN CONTROL PANEL access for basic users.
However the sites created from lportal have a lot of content, and I'm trying to avoid re-creating these sites in a different area of liferay i.e. re-creating the sites from their social office user profile.
IS THERE A WAY TO FIX THE INHERITED ROLES FROM SITES from the homepage? Or will I need to re-create all of those sites in a different location i.e. thier social office profile, so that any members of those sites do not inherit Administrator Rights?
My goal is to take away ADMINISTRATOR Rights, and ADMIN ACCESS to the PORTAL and SERVER sections of the CONTROL PANEL for average users, yet still keep the same sites, content, and memberships.
I have attached some screen shots of what the control panel looks like as the Administrator or if the regular user is a member of the LPORTAL and what the control panel should look like normally (without a membership to lportal), I have also attached some screen shots of the "Inherited Roles" associated with being a member of lportal, and without a membership to lportal there are no inherited roles.
