    Thanks for the link, but this will not work, because I am logged on another XP machine as myself with full local and domain rights..and it works fine

    Use an account that has the appropriate permissions to restore the permissions to the GPO. If no other accounts have permissions to restore the permissions to the GPO reset the permissions for the account or group that has been denied access to the GPO.
