How to use gpedit if it is disabled

By vsboxerboy ·
I was in the process of editing the group policy when I used the feature to block all but the programs that I listed. I typed gpedit.mxc by mistake and now I can't get back into the policy editor. To make matters worse, this is the administrator account and the only other programs I unblocked are internet explorer, AIM, and iTunes. Luckily, if worse comes to worse I can send my files via AIM to another computer and reinstall windows but is there ANY way to gain access to the group policy editor after disabling it? I also have a guest account active that I can get on as well. Thanks

Go into your system32 folder, navigate to the hidden GroupPolicy folder, and delete out any .pol files in the user and machine folders. delete the .ini file and then reboot.

Gpedit blockout

Many thanks for your suggestion regarding Gpedit blocking out access to itself.
It really saved me a lot of formatting and resetting up.
