    Locked myself out of my C: through denying all sharing settings to "Everyone"


    Hello, yesterday I was trying to make it so I could access my second pc from my main pc, and in doing so somehow ended up making an "Everyone" permission and setting all the permissions to deny, and saving.


    Doing so has made my C: inaccessible, except for my desktop (off my CLocked myself out of my C: through denying all sharing settings to "Everyone" :) and most of the files in my C:, I cannot go into Advanced Sharing at all, nor can I change owner/Read permissions in Advanced security settings.


    I also cannot use certain programs such as Task Manager.


    Thanks

    :)
