We denied all rights on the C: to the user "everyone".  The machine won't let us get in it and it makes a blue screen on startup.

The local administrator and domain administrator can't log on the computer.

How do we get access back.  We have files on this machine that we need to recover.

 Take the hard drive out and put it in another system as a slave drive.  Then, reset the permissions on the drive and put it back.

leews got the right idea. One more thing. If you have problems changing the permissions, you may have to take ownership of the files first.

I hope this helps

The suggestion to take ownership would make the recovery complete.
