No! NTFS permissions are stored on the file system along with the file they are not a setting in Windows but of the file itself. The problem, you applied DENY permissions which override ALLOW permissions on a group all users are part of, the USERS group. Even tho the ADMINISTRATORS group is given ALLOW those DENY permissions set to USERS takes precedence thus locking yourself out.

You might try from an administrative command prompt: (Not tested.)
Code:
icacls E:\* /remove:d users /T /C /L
