    I made a mistake and did a stupid thing by using the time restriction on Windows 7. I wanted to test it out to see how it work but I put in the wrong date. Instead of Sunday I put Saturday.

    ei. net user ADMIN /time:Sa,12pm-3pm

    So now I'm stuck for a whole week before I can log in again to make changes. Is there a way around this?

    Try disconnecting that machine from the Internet and then set the BIOS date and time to the values matching the policy.
