The problem I am having is that I created a new Group Policy in Active Directory to restrict user access to info they dont need (windows article Q278295) such as the shut down option and administrative tools. Once I created an Oragnizational Unit for our needs, I restricted myself as administrator from the Shut Down button, accessing MMC, and accessing the Network and Dial up Connections applet. So I deleted the new OU I had created and rebooted the server and still get the message that I don't have permission to access the above functions. Weirdly enough, when I installed IE6, the Shut Down option came back but I still cannot access MMC or the Network and Dial up Connections. Can you help me?
