Revert User Permissions?

Okay, so I try to edit a forum permission for guests, and set everything to "disallow" but then it messes up global view of everything for guests. So Opps. I screwed up.

Is there a way to revert the permissions back to normal for this group? Yes, the standard guests group.

xenForo beta 5 here.

There is no revert option for the default group permissions. You need to change the permissions back manually. Here is a snapshot of the default Forum Permissions for the guest group after a new install:

Admin CP -> Users -> List User Groups -> Unregistered / Unconfirmed

Everything (except avatars and attachments) is stored in the database.
If you set everything back to the default as Jake suggested then that will reset the permissions.

But when I went to the usergroup, and set it to default, I try to log out, I see that the site is showing the login screen.

Hm. :-/

If you see nothing but the login screen as a guest then that probably means they don't have the View permission:

Admin CP -> Users -> List User Groups -> Unregistered / Unconfirmed -> View

Here is a screen cap of the default permissions for guests under the General Permissions area:
