    I had to shutdown internet access so a program wouldnt call home.

    Told windwos firewall to lcok all incoming connections.

    Forgot that rdp was also dependant on it :(

    Is there a way to get back in myself or I have to wait for tech support?

    Since W130SN answered it already, there is no need to repeat it over. Let them fix it for you.

    Another case would be reinstalling the OS. Thats only if you have the option to reinstall the OS in one click, and also if you are looking for quick access and dont have anything important on the HDD.
