I am locked out of all user accounts but a restricted access one.

I use XP pro, and normaly have 3 user accounts;

I was not able to access Karla's documents from JOX. so I fiddled with the 'account policies'. :thumbsup:
I changed the lockout badcount from 0 to 1 and the other two settings to all 9's.

When I loged of to switch users there were 2 accounts;

I tried to restore the preveous days settings: no good. So tried to undo the changes I made in 'account policies'. Nothing showed up in administrators tools so I tried to undo it in a notepad file. :flowers:

Now I am locked out of all accounts but KIDS, which is basicly a desktop with shortcuts. I emptied the start menu of every thing I could.

I have tried to use my windows cd to repare, but when the message comes up to change to an administrator accout it wont change to any of them.
Because of the restricted access I cant use any of the down laods you suggest and I cant find the control panal anymore.
Before I was locked out of Administrator I could see the other acounts but not access them, so I know they are there. SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR AWAY!!
