Can't logon to domain controller;1058 1030 errors

Windows 2003 Server.  When I attempt to logon directly to the server, after I enter the username and password, I never get a desktop.  I'm able to move the mouse, and all the network resources are available for users, but I can't access the server.

I can, however, RDP to the server just fine.  I managed to check the event logs, and am logging a ton of 1030 and 1058 errors indicating the "generic but never really very helpful" gpi problems.
This server is a domain controller.

I solved the problem myself.  It's due to missing files under the policy folder.

No.  That's not it.  The server is completely patched and current.

Correction, the description should have read gpt.ini, not gpi.ini.  Can an admin change please?

This is scary.  A 500 point question that's gotten one response in almost a week.
