Local Computer Policy options missing after installing SP3 with .NET framework 2.0

I am setting up a computer for use in a public area with little supervision, so I was using the Local Computer Policy to restrict users from making changes and accessing things they shouldn't, like changing the network options or accessing the C: drive.

One program that I needed to run needed the .NET framework 2.0 to run.  I could not get .NET framework 2.0 to install unless I installed XP SP2, then the .NET framework 2.0, then SP3.  I then updated everything else Microsoft recommended except for .NET framework 3.0

After doing that, the Local Computer Policy does not have any of the Windows Settings or Administrative Templates that I was using to restrict the users.  Administrative Templates now has only Windows Components, and that only contains settings for Search and Windows Media Player.  

I have tried removing the filter from the Administrative Templates, and typing regsvr32 gptext.dll at a command prompt.  No results.

How can I get my controls back?

I read that question before posting this question.  I tried the suggestions there, and none of them made any difference.

Reformatted and reinstalled.  Checked the local policy after every step to see when the options were removed.  It appeared to be when I installed additional options, including Media Player 11.  So now I just don't have that installed, and I have the policy options still.
