    I just tried to install Windows Installer 3 on a Win2K system, but due to various security restrictions placed by this computer's previous owner, I got an access denied error.

    Being the idiot that I am, I decided to mess with the local security policy of the system, checking every box along the way. After rebooting, however, a new problem arose...

    "The local policy of this system does not allow you to login interactively"


    As I'm sure you can tell, this is quite frustrating. Even more frustrating is the fact that everywhere I've looked tells me to reset the policy from a different computer in the domain. This is a stand-alone system. It doesn't go online. It's not in a network.

    So, my question is: How can I reset the security policy when I can't log in? I've got two weeks worth of work on it that has to be turned in by 8AM, which gives me five hours to solve this issue. Thus my problem is compounded.


    (PS: The computer I'm using now is a different one, obviously.)

    Hohum, at about 7AM, it became apparent that a solution would not present itself in time. So, being faced with this dillema, I did what any responsible worker would do: Called in sick.

    Anyways, I've got an extension on when this needs to be fixed, and I've hobbled my way through most of it. What I'm looking for now is the exact command to reset the local security policy. I'm running off of a Win98 boot disk, so the directory of the exe used would be helpful.
