Can't login to my Windows Server 2008

I mistakenly added "users" profile to "deny logon" local group policy and now I can't logon to my server with any of my profiles not even Administrators profile group without getting error message "you cannot logon because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please see your network administrator for more information"
Can someone advise how to disable the group policy or get me pass the login screen so that i can revert back to the way it was.
Thanks.

Have you tried to start the machine in safe mode?

Have you tried to create a group policy that is set to enforce (so it by passes the local policy) to change the setting you have put in place?

I have to get the childish aspect out of the way first.. "Epic Fail!". :-)

I haven't come across this before, and I'm sure others will be able to help, but the first thing to try would be logging in as Local Administrator on the Server and see if it will let you modify the GP.

2Cs, that is the problem, safe mode always takes me straight back to the logon screen hence my inability to edit the local policy. I even tried safe mode with command prompt but no joy. I need to get pass the logon screen. i have tried all the advanced boot modes and same result.

Have you tried creating a group policy object on another the domain controller and appliying that to the server giving you this issue?

If you don't have another DC create one inside of a VM and then remove it afterwards.

Sorry to hear you have had to come to that, if the machines where on a domain you could use GPO to push out these changes to all machines in specifiy OU's automatically rather then doing each one manually (also if you do something wrong you can change it back quite easily and it will all be updated automatically to all machines in that effected OU).

Hope you manage to sort it out honest64.

Thanks to '2Cs' and 'bryon44035v3' for their responses. I cldn't follow their suggestions because I had to get my server back online. I believe their suggestions might be helpful to others hence why i didn't delete this questions.

The path i followed was to rebuild my server since it was only 2 days old i got away with that. My server is now working.
