The local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively on laptop

Hi,

I have a domain member laptop that tells me "The local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively" regardless of which I account I use to login, even the local administrator.

Tried the following:
- Apply a group policy to the laptop via the domain controller, allowing all users to log in.
- Copy secedit.sdb from a clean Windows XP pro install.
- Use NTrights to give the local admin logon rights, the prompt reports that the rights assignment was succesfull
- Copy the "security" file from c:\windows\repair to C:\Windows\System32\Config\, this gives me a error about a password at startup before the login screen, and the laptop reboots.

I can't reach the laptop by network, since the firewall is on. I can't disable the firewall, since I can't log on to the laptop. You see the circle? :)

Please help me out!

- Yes tried safe mode, same security error.
- About the linked article:
A: Tried this
B: Moved the laptop to a seperate OU, made a policy with this settings, and assigned it to the new OU. Rebooted the laptop 3 times, same problem.
C: Concerns terminal server, that is not my problem.

When I want to open the local policy of the laptop from the DC through MMC, I can't connect to the laptop since the firewall is enabled.

Is there any way to disable the firewall by using a boot disc?

Worst case scenario.... Manually restore the SECURITY hive from a known good time it was working.....

Local Security Policy changes are done under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SECURITY\Policy

Cant really edit the data offline  (least I seriously doubt it), but can replace the hive.....

Windows (xp) cound not start because the following file is missing or corrupt   \windows\system32\config\system

Ignore the title, but can either just try replacing the SECURITY hive, or all 5....
