1st: WINS stopped working (for no reason). I did a second-level repair, reinstalling it all over again. No success. Concurrently, other workstations accessing it started getting a "do not have user rights to access this machine" via Network Neighborhood. I first figured it was Policy Rights problems, or just corruption somewhere.
2nd: I removed extraneous garbage from GP security setup, reconfigured, rebooted, which is now giving the login problems!
At this point, I can get into Repair Directory mode. I am trying to simply REMOVE GP Dir altogether to rebuild completely. I don't care about salvaging any rights (not much in it anyway). I just want to get back in!! I can/will rebuild all that once I can get back in!!
Anyway, I can't delete directories at DOS-level repair mode. It won't let me do squat! It says its deleting, but doesn't! Any ideas or suggestions from here? Advice -- short of reformatting/starting over?
