Default domain policy - Extra registery settings - Display names cannot be found

I searched before posting but found no suitable answer for my issue.

When clicking the 'settings' tab on my default domain policy, I see a section under Administrative Templates called 'extra registry settings'.  Within the 'extra registry settings' I see a notation: "Display names for some settings cannot be found. You might be able to resolve this issue by updating the .ADM files used by Group Policy Management".

I am running a 2003 server function level domain.

How can I resolve this issue?  I will supply whatever other information is necessary.

As a side note, I posted another question about my default domain policy here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_26469558.html.  I do not know if these questions are related, but I wanted those helping me aware of the other default group policy issue I posted.

Thanks in advance your any assistance.

If another DC has a working system.adm file and the DC is using the same version of server as the one with the problem then you can use that. The effect will probably be the same as downloading a new one - but it may offer slightly less risk as the one you are already using you know works in the situation your in ..

Has anyone in your organisation made custom ADM files ? as in designed custom GPO settings to alter specific registry settings for certain things not configurable by the default ? if so they may not be complete or formatted correctly.

if they have, follow this guide as it contains the correct formatting.

Not to my knowledge.  I have been the IT Manager for five years now and I would be the only one on my staff who would make the changes.

"may" need to update or "must"?  I do not want to recklessly change something until I know for sure.

well if one of your ADM's is corrupt - which would seem to be true since your having issues in your other post too... then updating your ADM's will rectify.

"May" meaning that it is likely to fix the problem.  The update I sepc'd will refresh the current ADM files and add others for later versions of Windows.  It shouldn't break anything, but hey, it's Microsoft.

See the latest from my other post:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_26469558.html#a33667026

It appears one of my other DCs may have an intact system.adm file.  I am waiting for feedback from the experts over there to verify if I can just copy the system.adm from one of my DCs to the other without having to redownload and replace the files from the link provided earlier in this thread.
