2008 r2 denies local login

I had all users showing on the server login screen so I did the following.

1. Select Local Security Policy from Administrative Tools.
2. Expand Local Policies.
3. Select User Rights Assignment.
4. Double-click Deny log on locally to display dialog.
5. Add users or groups.
6. Click OK to save.
7. Reboot.

Then I tested and the 3 users did not show then rebooted and all was well.

Then to hide all users I accedentally put everyone as clear all users except Administrator.

It the would not allow local users to access the server.
The server is not a domain and no remote acces had been setup

Can you help ??

EDIT:  Did not read it completely.  Please ignore my suggestion.

You can try to RDP to the machine and access it that way.
Do you have RDP enabled.

You can try Safe Mode boot and see if that works.
Also if this a production machine?

Tried safe mode and got the option go to safe mode then continued and started normally.
So I cannot login.  This is a production machine so I am in bad way.

Have you tried reboot into the last known good configuration?

Do you have a recent backup?
