I made a huge mistake and hope someone can help. I  clicked on the Macintosh HD icon, did "Get Info" and under Sharing, changed the setting for "Everyone" to "No access". I left the user (read/write) and admin settings the same. Immediately after, access to everything was cut off. After restarting the computer, the apple icon loads, the the spinner starts to show the system loading, then it freezes owith the grey screen + apple, but that's it. I've restarted multiple times, got in via command -R and checked out disk utilities - disk and permissions verify fine.  Any ideas, or idid I forever padlock this system??
