Registry permissions

By linnygrins4 ·
I accidentally took all instances out of the HKEYlocalmachine in the permissions while in the registry and now can't access the sign in (I'm assuming due to the fact I removed permission to access the localmachine)(Darn!) Is there a way to edit the permissions from the recovery console? I can't acess safe mode either I did a repair with the install disk and can see my protected folder from my dual boot os but can't access it. How can I retrieve the my document folder from the downed os? Can I do it from the command prompt?

I have never tried that, nor seen it. Can you log in as the administrator?
Have you tried using the XP CD (not recovery console) to repair the installation?
Can you get to safe mode command prompt for a system restore?
