Internet Explorer Branch missing from some of the Group Policies

I am running Windows Server 2003.  Within group policy I am trying to set some Internet Explorer Settings.  The problem is when I go to the group policy I want to set, there isn't a branch for Internet Explorer.  I go to User Configuration ~ Administrative Templates ~ Windows Components and it isn't there.  It shows up on my other group policies, but not this one.
Any help in figuring out what happened to make it disappear and how to get it back would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi matty74,

you have lost the adm template for internet explorer

right click on the administrative templates and choose add/remove templates - check to see if the following is present


if not, then click add and the defaul location should have the template sitting there, just add it

otherwise its in c:\windows\inf
