HI.  I am setting up offline files on a new computer running winXP SP3 and want to exclude mdb files, etc... but when I browse to gpedit.msc/Local Computer Policy/Administrative Templates/,  I only see Windows Components.  Other folders are not visible and I need to get to the network settings to mess with offline policies.  Any suggestions?  Any work-arounds?  I do have a few rules set up on a domain policy but not networking. I also use Scriptlogic Desktop Authority but am not messing with GP there either.

are you logged in as the local administrator of the XP box or are you logged in with a domain account. If you are logged in as the domain user ensure that that user is member of the Local administrators group
