I joined a computer to my domain (win server 2003) and once I logged onto the domain from the win7 ultimate machine, I logged on with an administrator account. I went to gpedit.msc  I get an error. Below is the error, and any help will be greatly appreciated. i logged onto the domain from the pc with admin account so i'm not sure what's wrong here. capture

You need to run it as administrator.  Under Administrative Tools right click Group Policy Managenent Console and select Run As Administrator

You are definitely logged in as DOMAIN\Administrator

If so can you try disabling UAC just to see if that's the cause?  You should re-enable it afterwards.

Then the user you are using is not an administrator.

Can you lOdin using the actual administrator account and see what happens?
