Locked out of the Network and Dial-Up Connections control panel

When using Group Policy snap-in to MMC, I locked myself out of the Network and Dial-Up Connections control panel. Is there a policy that reverses this?

You need to find the policy that did the dirty work and disable it. Use gpresult to find the policy.

Run gpresult /v > gpresult.txt at a computer with no access to Network and Dialup Connections. Use Notepad to read the text file. Look through each policy until you find the one that did the damage. Use the Group Policy Editor to disable the policy (or set it to "Not Configured."
