Hi , when I am lauching secpol or gpedit from cmd line, i ve got the following messade :
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
error message not found
OS : Vista ultimate 64bits
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 feqture so I dont have any previous restore point with a good secpol conf.
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)
the msc files are present and I can open them using ascii editor, but maybe it comes from the registry...?
Does anybody have a hint how to figure this out without being obliged to reinstall windows from scratch ...?
rem : If I got default copy of these files from a clean brand new install and if I copy them onto my system , would it work?
thanks a lot in advance
