Restricted in Windows

Here's the deal.
   I installed the policy editor made a policy, saved and enabled it. The next time I started up my computer no matter which username i go in under, it won't let me do anything. I am locked out of all programs including explorer.

I can use dos.

The .pol file is gone.

How do disable the restrictions?


Thanks for all Help.

What you have done is created a policy so no programs will run or if you did have some programs run you forgot to add the system policy editor to the list of programs to run.

Try installing the system policy editor again from add/remove programs.
I hope this will help you
If this doesn't work I think you may have to reinstall.  A friend of mine did this once but he was on a network so he was able to goto another computer and administer it from there.

hope it works for you
