Limited acces to C drive

Please help.....After I shared my C drive on a network it was working
fine.....I then unshared it but something went wrong and said the hard
drive would be in a mixed state if i didn't continue the operation
fully....i ignored it(idiot) and carried on....but now i cant access my
C drive directly but i can access my documents....i was thinking i would
just system restore it but i cant even access that and i cant back up my
files either.....but i can access them.....i have tried changing
permissions in the security tab of c drive but it wont let me stating
that access is denied....and i have tried to enable the guest account
but it wont even open up the window to do so.....please help.....i
really don't have any idea what to do
Masood

RE: Limited acces to C drive
You may have to allow ‘Everyone’ to get out of this situation.

Try right-clicking Computer > Manage > Storage > Disk Management then
right-click the C drive graphic > Properties > Security Tab > Edit > Add then
type ‘Everyone’ (not the quotes) and below it select your preferences, e.g.
Read or Full Control. Now Apply, OK, etc. to finish.

Re: Limited acces to C drive
What parameter?

You're clicking boxes and typing one word, the word Everyone!
