    Software restrictions

    I can't be the only person to have done this...

    I was messing about with software restrictions on my PC and mistakenly I've disallowed access to the C:/ rather than the path I wanted to disallow. I can't undo it either because I'm blocked from accessing anything!

    Can I do undo this or have I well and truly messed up?

    Local policy. It's not a networked machine, it's my own.

    I know it was a foolish thing to do but it wasn't intentional. Nevertheless I've done it and now I'm kicking myself! I'll try gpedit.msc when I get back to the PC.

    Edit: This worked. Thanks.

    SRP doesn't apply to Safe-Mode does it?

    I thought by default it didn't affect Local Administrators either...?
