Can't login to Win2000

Hi experts

Previously I was able to login to my Windows2000 using my Administrator id. But carelessly, I went to Local Security Settings in Administrative Tools and made some changes which I am not quite sure of.

I believe I made some changes in Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment

and the changes I made is

Deny logon locally --> I put my Administrator id there

and now I am not able to login to my Win2K with the error message such as "Local security/policy do not allow you to access this computer. I forget the exact error message but kinda like it.

I have the ERD Commander so I am able to go to see my files. So can you guys advise me or give me any idea how to changed back the setting so I can access my Win2K normally again ?

Using the ERD commander, I can access the Regedit eventhough on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, but I have no idea which one that I need to change if there is.

Thanks all

Connect from another machine
go to control panel-->administrative tools-->computer management
right click on  Computer Management (local) and choose connect to another computer
enter the name of your computer
it may ask for the administrative password
add a new user
add the new user to the administrators group
logon to your computer with the new user
undo the changes you have made to lock out your administrator account.

Hi Jcoppin

We are doing home networking with 1 person under same workgroup. So you mean, what I have to do is just switch on my computer until it shows the login box. And after that tried to connect to my computer using my friends' computer to do what you have told above.

What if my computer is only a stand alone computer ?
