Accidentally removed permission for authenticated users

Hi,

I recently installed windows 7 32 bit and was browsing thru security settings for my drive D (partition). i accidentally removed permission for 'authenticated users', and now getting error "access is denied" for this drive, and I'm using the enabled admin account in windows 7.

All my important files are stored on this drive and need your help accessing them badly.

Your assistance will be appreciated.
