Okay, this is a pretty stupid situation, but i got myself into it.
Anyway, i was setting security permissions on a folder, that i didnt want anybody to beable to access, but myself.  Well i went to change the permissions on the EVERYONE category and i clicked deny all and then apply by mistake.   Needless to say, i cannot access my folder despite the fact that i am my own system administrator.   I have tried adding permissions for myself, but it never lets me apply the changes. Thank you
