Corrupt GPO?

Windows Server 2003 R2, every GPO works and I can edit all but one of them. This one "corrupt" (I don't know what else to call it) gpo gives me the following error.



I did some research and sent this to some coworkers. All of the advice I've found/received hasn't worked for me. I tired resetting the permissions with Dsacls and using instructions found here How to Use Dsacls.exe in Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 and it says it works but I get the same error. I was told to export the gpo and then reimport it back. That resets the permissions and you can get in. Didn't work. I was told to just copy and paste the GPO (which also resets permissions I guess) but that also results in the same error. So what do I do ... create a new GPO and start from scratch?

**EDIT**

Found something interesting. It appears that when you look at the GPO's in ADSIEdit you can tell which one is restricted by the following ... NOTE: The restricted policy is displayed with a notepad icon; the other policies are displayed with folder icons.

I don't have any Notepad icons, all of them are Folder icons. Now I'm even more confused.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
