group policy management - the system cannot find the file specified

something has happened to the group policies in sysvol\domainname.ca\policies
when I run the Group Policy Management program, and I click on any of the built in GPO's, the program comes back with 'the system cannot find the specified file'.
I can create new GPO's and they show up in the directory above but the existing GPO's (Default Domain Policy and Default Domain Controller) come back with the same error when you click on them.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

The next problem is the fact that users logging into the domain don't run any of the GPO's because the error message that I get with them is 'the user DOMAIN\user does not have RSOP data
when I run rsop.msc on the workstations, I get a message stating that the rsop data and  namespace is invalid

Try the Dcgpofix.exe tool for a Windows 2003-based DC.

Is DNS running properly.  Issues like this in the past have been resolved by fixing any DNS problems that may be hiding in active directory.
