RSOP MMC Problem

Hey guys, when i run through RSOP on our server, i select current user and this machine.  it appears to have run through fine, the problem comes when i try to click on Administrative Templates, listed under either Computer Configuration or User Configuration.  when i click on Administrative Templates, it appears to hang the console.  if i leave it for a while it eventually expands Administrative Tools, but rather than show up in english, some of them show up in what looks like Hebrew or something, and others show in sqaures (like when word cant open a document properly).  this is making it unuasble the server itself seems to be pretty healthy, any ideas on how to fix this?

Actually that's a bug: 574387 - DTS: Installation of .NET Framework causes Multi Language
Administrative Templates to display in RSOP console, you can call Microsoft to check it..
Also, you can follow steps below to resolve your issue:

Since there is no country specific version of .Net Framework 2.0 it
install the adm files for all of the languages supported. In order to only see the
results for US English remove the following adm files.
Search for the files with .adm extension, you may get the result as below.
AER_1025.ADM
AER_1028.ADM
AER_1029.ADM
AER_1030.ADM
AER_1031.ADM
AER_1032.ADM
AER_1035.ADM
AER_1036.ADM
AER_1037.ADM
AER_1038.ADM
AER_1040.ADM
AER_1041.ADM
AER_1042.ADM
AER_1043.ADM
AER_1044.ADM
AER_1045.ADM
AER_1046.ADM
AER_1049.ADM
AER_1053.ADM
AER_1055.ADM
AER_2052.ADM
AER_2070.ADM
AER_3076.ADM
AER_3082.ADM
The only AER_*.adm that needs to be there is AER_1033.adm. The 1033 designation is
the US country code.
So only keep AER_1033.adm file and delete rest of the files, close and reopen
RSOP. Now you will find the results in correct manner.

Also note: You can take backup before removing tehse adm files

Thanks Hardeep, your correct im getting loads of adm files as you stated, also getting loads more like wuau.adm, wmplayer.adm etc. i have 3 lots of AER_1033.adm files located in these diretories:
D:\ClientApps\outlook2003\FILES\WINDOWS\INF
C:\WINDOWS\inf
C:\WINDOWS\PolicyBackup

im guessing i just need the one located in C:\windows\inf? and just delete the AER****.adm files, leave the others intact?

Hi Brad,

Only keep AER_1033.adm file and delete rest of the files
If you would like you can take backup of these files before deleting them.
