Cannot log on locally after changing Domain Policy

I have a test server that I'm using to build a small test network. I wanted to add a bit of security to my FTP server so what I did was grant the right to Log on Locally to a group of users supposed to access the FTP.

However, I messed up and forgot to add the administrators. Now I can't log into my server or any other machines unless it's in that group and to make matter worse, they don't have any administrative rights.

So I cannot use that account to get me out of trouble. Do you have any suggestions? I've tried anything I could think of (logging into a machine that was isolated from the server and tried to change the users with MMC but I cannot log on locally is all I get).

I don't want to reinstall everything. Does anybody have a suggestion?
