Hi
I have a Laptop running XP Pro which I use for work but I have been using on my Home Network. Unfortunately I buggered my local policy trying to make it update from microsoft rather than my companies WUS server. Bit embarrissed to let them know at work and also I might get in trouble. Ive read several articles on how to use ntrights and have tried to use the ntrights -m \\YourServer -u <group or user> +r SeInteractiveLogonRight and ntrights -m \\YourServer -u <group or user> -r SeDenyInteractiveLogonRight commands but all I get is ****error**** openpolicy -1073741790 !!!!! I've tried this from another machine on my home networt running XP PRO.
I'm not to bad at this network stuff, a simplest explaination would be nice. The laptop has no cdrom or floppy drive. I've tried booting of a rescue disk using a usb cd-rom but it wont.

Thanx in advance

Since this is a corporate built PC it likely has many security settings and safeguards to prevent your intrusion.
I suggest putting in a service call on your PC to the help desk and denying everything.
Backup your data files because they will probably just format your computer and reinstalling you OS and programs.
