MISSING FOLDERS with the gpedit configuration window

Missing Folders with gpedit.msc

Local Computer Policy\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components...

SEARCH & WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER are the "ONLY" ones listed.

I am missing the follwing "needed" folders

Windows Explorer
Start Menu & Taskbar
Desktop
Control Panel
System


I attempted a MS fix... "article ID 555218 where you register various DLL's but that didn't restore the folders.

I've attached a JPG of a screen shot, this shows what the folders should look like.

It's your lucky day dude. I spent all morning trying to figure this out.

Right Click on Administrative templates.
When the Add Remove Templates Dialog appears, click the ADD Button.
This will bring up the Policy Templates dialog. Highlight
system.adm and click the Open button.
Click the Close button on the Templates Dialog.
