GPO = Group Policy Object ( Objeto directiva de grupo).

What I see on your screenshot is a possible corruption of the ADM file in the SYSVOL component of the GPO. It doesn't affect the GPO settings.

1) Install GPMC on your machine (Group Policy Management Console): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0A6D4C24-8CBD-4B35-9272-DD3CBFC81887&displaylang=en

2) In GPMC, check your GPO: in the right pane, choose 'details'. Check that the version matches between AD and the Sysvol, and note the Unique ID

3) Browse your Sysvol (\\yourDomain\Sysvol\yourDomain\Policies\yourGPOUniqueID\Adm) and check the ADM file(s)

Using GPMC, you can add/remove ADM files, it doesn't affect the policy settings (once configured, the settings remain).
ADM files are the GPO 'templates' providing a user friendly view of the settings (as well as possible default values)

An ADM file is a text file containing: the GPO settings and possible values, the registry key they will influence, and the text strings with explanations.
They can be loaded / unloaded from each gpo.

I think the ADM file in your GPO has corrupted text strings, and maybe corrupted content.
Unless you have loaded personalized ADM files (as they can be personalized), you can simply reload the default ones.

Hello,
From your screenshot, I see you have 3 policies, 2 being the default ones.
Browse down to : \\bixicableweb\sysvol\boxicableweb\policies\{A772abfc-......-B851}\adm
You should find the current adm files of your policy.

Have you tried to load/unload default adm files?
