Angry xhost problem

I am unable to get into xserver from a normal user account,only accessible account is the root.
The reason i guess is probably i used xhost -
in my root login.
Can anybody tell me what would be the solution to have the display from all logins
anytime i execute a xhost + command it gives me

xlib :connect to :0.0 refused by server
xhost :unable to open display

thanks in advance

try this command

xauth generate :0 .

don't leave off the last dot

see if that fixes it

if it's real screwed up you might need to add a new user and use the new acount
