GPO ball up my computer
Posted on 2009-04-09
I have a problem with my computer - I can not copy or paste anything. The computer can not be access from any other computer on the network, but it can access the server and workstations.
My computer is on a network that runs AD and the Enterprise Domain have working on the GPOs - I noticed that we were not longer administrators on our computer. After talking with them the Enterprise Admin made some changes to the GPO and asked me to perform a gpupdate /force. After running the command I could no longer access the network correctly- the Enterprise Admin could not see my computer on the network even though I had an IP address (which I could ping); I could ping the DHCP and DNS server) but he couldnt access my computer at all. We tried to do a restore from a restore point, but the GPO policy prohibited this. Im also getting error (error5: access denied) when I try to start RPC which is not starting as it use to. To further the problem after restarting my computer and trying to go to the Last Known good config that didnt work.
Thinking that I would just copy the files from my desktop which I can access, however; I can not copy them to another copy or server -- nor can I access my computer from another machine on the network. From my computer I can not copy or paste anything, but I can open access other machines on the network. Also I can not access the Start bar at all it is hidden at the bottom of the screen.
This is a mess, at this point how can I just get the documents off my desk (copy them) and the reformat the computer???
