Certificate Services gone rogue!

Certificate Services gone rogue!

Certificate Services gone rogue!

When experimenting with the Certificate Services Security settings I managed to delete all user/admin groups and set the rights of the local administrator (server admin) to only the enroll option. So as of now there is no group/user/admin who has either the "manage" nor "read" option. Meaning I can't even access the CA anymore, the service is completely unaccessible.

When I try to open the Certifice Services the system responds  with: Access is denied. 0x80070005 (WIN32:5).

When I tried to uninstall the service it said: "An error was detected while configuring Certificate Services. The Certificate Services Setup wizard will need to be rerun to complete the configuration. Certifcate Services setup failed with the following error: Access is denied. 0x80070005 (WIN32:5) "

I have already rebooted the server multiple times with no change.

As of now, Certificate Services is neither to be found in the Administrative tools nor in the Services windows, which makes me believe the service is completely uninstalled. But still when trying to reinstall the service the same error occurs.

Is there anyway to completely remove Certificate Services that I haven't tried yet?

Thanks in advance,
