local group policy editor access locked out!

By myteched ·
have environment of SBS2K8 Std.Ed. with Win7Pro w/stations joined to the Domain .
To apply specific user policies (lock-down) on a specific w/station, I logged-in as a Domain standard user and used gpedit.msc on that w/station; enabled multiple policies under 'User Configuration' incl. disable 'run', cmd.exe; control panel etc.
Now that w/station is locked to an extent that whether I login as Domain Administrator; local Administrator to local w/station; same lock-down policies are applied to all of them....hence cannot do much on that w/station.
Any suggestions to how access local Group Policy Editor and reverse these policies?
Responses much appreciated.

Can you use gpedit.msc /gpcomputer: Computername from a different computer?

well...lucky didn't have to do system restore or other methods as described...below worked liked a charm:
* opened group policy mmc on another w/station and browsed to the 'affected' one:
* Start, Run, mmc,
* File, add/remove snap-in, add,
* group policy, add,
* browse, (for affected computer),
* enter pc name, ok, finish, close, ok.
From here all the local policies were accessible and reverted to default settings.
thanx again for quick suggestions.
