The best options are any type of restore (backup, system restore, etc.). But this is the best option I know of:

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose

You can read more here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313222

But backup your existing system before hand as even this may not reset the security back to the defaults. If it doesn't work be sure to test all your applications as you may need to reinstall or repair them. And as a last resort rebuild the server from scratch.

Exactly where did you make the permissions change? Can you reverse it?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT changed users to full control. I reversed it but made no difference

NEVER NEVER NEVER give full control to the root of a registry hive. Do you have a backup?

This was an error of judgement I know what should have happened. What I need is a solution. There is no backup. Are you able to offer a way forward?

Sorry, it should be "If it does work be sure to test all your applications as you may need to reinstall or repair them."

Thanks connectecex for your expert advice. I now have a working Terminal Server. I also have several back ups and a DR solution in place :)
