Ok I need to give details here.   I work for a school district the School has its own domain and the Point of Sale company has its own domain they are not connected in any way.  

The guy in charge of the point of sale network decided to add a security policy to the top of the domain.  This policy has EVERYTHING enabled.  He came to me to fix his oops.  When I log into his DC and try to open the User and Computers MMC it tells me it cant due to restrictions.  I also cannot get to CMD or anything.  How do I fix this guys problem?  

He has everything enabled in this policy and the DC is just locked down.

Does he have a system state backup?  You might have to boot into DSRM mode and authoritatively restore the system state.

Try booting into Safe Mode on the DC and unlinking the policy in question.

I got it working.  I was able to remote into a workstation that somehow didnt get the policy (Possibly a inheritance filter)  and was able to install the admin kit and delete the policy.

My boss just sent his boss a very bad email.  :)  Thanks
