I was trying to share my c drive to my network and took it too far. I ended up changing permissions and now I cant access the c drive or any program, I am locked out. What now :p

Thanks

:)Thanks for the reply but I really did a number on it , I tried doing both your suggestions but that did not work either. It said it was activated but would not activate. After twelve frustrating hours I backed up my files and did a clean install. :mad:
Have you enabled the built in Admin account? If not see Option Two in this tutorial
Enable Builtin Admin Account

(It may be easier to run a restore point than fix it manually)

Try not to feel too badly. I had a machine with Win2K Server. About every two weeks it would blow up on boot. Some unfixable stuff about an invalid opcode in the kernel. After the 3rd reinstall I gave up and put a different flavor of Windows on. :)
