secpol.msc and gpedit.msc seem to be corrupted RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, Ok I don't really know if it is the right place to ask my question as I am running OS Vista Ultimate 64 bits and not Server but anyway, like I was recommended to do so on this one :

    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistarepair/thread/769e285b-e5e7-4380-baf9-8f4253b8d4fe
    and this one

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/thread/63c6b963-c6c4-4527-be1a-4e673a417c32


    So I recapitulate hereafter my problem :

    when I am launching secpol or gpedit from cmd line, i ve got the following message :


    Failed to open the Group Policy Object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights.
    Details : unspecified error.


    then the console is poping up afer pressing ok, if I want to display local group policy editor properties; I have another error :


    an error has occured in the script on this page
    line 1
    char 1
    error message not found
    code 0
    url res://C:\Windows\system32\mmcndmgr.dll/views.htm



    This features used to work nominally a week ago, but I've got a disk failure in the meantime...Unfortunately, I never enabled the system restore feature so I don't have any previous restore point with a good configuration.

    Trying to solve the pb, I have performed :
    -un sfc /scannow went ok without errors
    -full antivurus + malware scan ok
    -installed kb941314 (Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools)
    -inplace upgrade after dowgrading to SP1

    All without any success...

    So thanks in advance for your thoughts if any before I am going to a complete re-install from scratch...
