Unable to run any program on the server

By khanzada ·
Hi, We're running Windows 2000 advanced server with service pack 3 on our intranet server. I was trying to restrict some of the programs to run from the server, but by mistake I pressed "OK" without adding the programs and after that nothing is "OK" it has restricted all programs to run from the server, not even MMC.

I would appreciate the quickest possible response as this is a production server.

Thanks in advance,

What were you setting to disallow programs to run, Group Policy, or a 3rd party app?

you didn't happen to remove the permissions for the files/folders for _everyone_ (including the Administrator). i.e. the permissions box was blank when you hit ok? If you did you will have to log in as the administrator, and take the ownership of those files back, then redistribute the permissions again.
