Removing Policy Editor?

I recently asked my grade 11 information technology class to modify a number of settings on their machines. To do so we had to remove a number of policies set in place by the policy editor put out by microsoft, and then reinstall them. This was fine except two of my student restored *all* of the settings. Now the computers do not run programs, do not access A:, do not shut down... you get the drift.With some work I can get them to look in drive A:, but when I try to run admin.exe to remove the policies they say I must see the system administrator to use the policy editor program. In short, they are dead.

I am willing to reformat them if need be, but can not even do that as the restrictions will not allow me to. Any ideas?
