"Ghost Policy"

I am getting the error below on several of my servers.  It seems to refer to a non-existent policy, B74AD32C-A1A2-47D7-8ECC-67911069A978.  If there is no policy at \\corp.DOMAIN.com\SysVol\corp.DOMAIN.com\Policies with this ID, why are the servers trying to access it?  I have tried gpupdate /force along with restarts.
