Hello everyone.  

I have a small problem in group policy.  I had a 2003 R2 DC.  Then I added a 2008 Std & then a 2008 R2 Ent. DC.  Then I removed the 2003 R2 from the domain.  Raised the domain and forest functional level to 2008.

I'm having problems with Offline files on some windows 7 and XP computers.  I have my group policy off.  (default)  With GP off, a couple workstations are still trying to sync offline files to the 2003 R2 DC, which is not in the domain anymore.  I removed the Offline GP before I removed the 2003 R2 DC.  I also checked that its not applied anymore.  Right now, gpresult gives me nothing that will help.

 I also have System Center Essentials Installed, and that's the only GP that is applied.

In the GP "SCE Managed Computers Group Policy (MAIN_MG)" I'm getting an error- telling me I have to update my ADM files.  How do I update them, and which ones?

Please help.  
(I'm from Russia, and a couple of my servers are in Russian, so posting logs.. or something... I think will not help, unless you know Russian ))).  Please ask, I will try to translate my logs and errors as close as possible to the original English Server OS)
