glad you got it...yes, admin is not immune from GPO! :)

for future, if you look at the .adm files on the server, you can decipher which actual registry key each of the group policy options is changing.

Please guys help, I can only access my drives now on the server, I cant access the regedit or anything else!
Login as Administrator as usual and take " full control ".
Administrator account can bypass the access.

Heres what I did after flipping  out for two hours!:

Luckily I had not disabled the registry editor. Went in, changed the key, and went back into the gpedit.msc to change what i had messed with. That will teach me to fiddle around with the Group Policies wihtout reserach!!!
