So before I state my problem I'm aware I screwed up.

I had users passing around a computer that ended up with a bunch of settings being screwed up which made me want to deny all regular domain users but not administrators. I did this as a local group policy on the computer under gpedit where i denied users and to my horrifying experience no users can log in, not even local admin. Is there a way to fix this?

Took a gander through it. Nothing stating how to fix this kind of a screw up. Can't access anything on the computer because of my policy.

I'll give him a try. currently i'm trying this http://www.windows-password-reset.com/Remove%20Deny%20logon%20locally.aspx but get stuck at the part where i restart windows and the cmd doesn't open.

*EDIT luckily i had a system restore file and converted it back before my stupid GP edit. I learned my lesson.

Did something like that myself a few years ago and completely locked myself out of my own system so I know how you felt.
