GPMC Settings Report Issue

I'm running into a problem using GPMC.  When I go to the settings report for a GPO I noticed a section called Extra Registry Settings.  Al of the settings in here appear to be from a custom adm file I had imported at one time.  I have since removed the adm template formt heGPO yet the settings are appearing here but no longer appear when I go to edit the GPO.

I even went to the GPO on the sysvol to determine if the custom adm file was still in the GPO and it isn't.  What is causing this and how can I resolve the problem?

The report actually reflects *exactly* what's configured in the GPO.
The adm templates are just that: *templates* for the GP editor to tell the editor which keys to configure how - the settings you configured are then saved in a .pol file. Removing the adm template from the *editor* does nothing to the saved *policy* file. This is not only true for custom adm files, this is true for any template file. Remove template files only from a GPO if each and every setting configured in it has been set to "Not configured".
You'll have to re-add that custom GPO file to the GPO, set all policies configured using this file to "Not configured", and only then can you remove the template. Simply removing the template from a GPO will NOT remove policies configured with it.
If you don't have the template anymore, you'll need to recreate it based on the GPMC report.

That seemed to work.  Why does everything in a custome ADM have to be set back to not configured before removing the custom adm file for the report to reflect correctly?

Maybe I'm missing something on how GPMC setting reports gathers its information it reports?
