Whenever I try and edit a new or old policy I have created from Group Policy Management console i get the above error. I can however open gpedit.msc it's self. I have tryed install GPMC onto an XP machine and get the same error there. We also have two admin accounts and i have tryed both of them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to check the file permissions in \\<domain>\SYSVOL\<domain>\Policies for any deny entries or reduced permissions to administrators.

Just had a look and the administrator has full control and there are no deny permissions. There is also nothing in the event logs.

Just had a look at this article and it doesn't seem to work as my domain deny's access to all the policies. I have tried it anyway and it hasn;t worked. I am going to upgarde my whole system to SBS 2008 in the next few months anyway so thanks for the repsonce.
