I th8ink I have a corrupt Group Policy. When I open it in the gpedit.msc there are a lot of what appear to be bad entries. When I open it I get several errors.. The following error occurred in c:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\Adm\AER_2068.ADM on line 189: Error 64 Help string specified more than once... File cannot be loaded.
Here are some samples of entries:
يعطّل هذا النهج التقرير عن الخطأ للتطبيقات.

إذا 'مكّنت' هذا النهج، فلن يتم إرسال التقارير.

إذا 'عطّلت' هذا النهج أو 'لم تكوّنه' فيجوز مطالبة المستخدم بإرسال تقارير عن الخطأ.

or Aquesta norma permet crear un registre amb la Gestió d'informes d'error corporatius.

Si ACTIVEU aquesta norma, els detalls de l'error, com ara el nom de l'usuari i de la màquina, s'inclouen al fitxer crash.log ubicat a l'arrel del camí del fitxer de la gestió d'informes d'error.

Si DESACTIVEU o NO HEU CONFIGURAT aquesta norma, no es crearà el fitxer de registre.

Aquesta norma no serà efectiva si no activeu la Gestió d'informes d'error corporatius.

Is this corruption on the Default Domain GPO?  Which GPO is it?

When I run gpedit.msc, it shows up in the Administrative Templates, under both the User and Computer.

SO I guess it is the Default Domain GPO

If it's an Administrative template, chances are it's an ADM file that's corrupt.  Make sure that you have copies of your AD templates and start removing those templates.  Right click on Administrative templates and find Add.  Then start by selecting the non-default templates and remove them.

I have no backup, when I do a gpedit, it opens the local computer policy (and this is the SBS Server/ DC.
As it iopens it give 4 errors specifying different files and lines of ADM files that are missing.

ALl of the ADM files pre-date the installation of the O/S so they mus be the defautls. Is there any way to delete the eexisting ones and let it recreate them, or will it just crash it?

Looks like the ADM files were causing some corruption.  I would ensure that you carefully look over those ADMs before adding them back into the GPO.
