I'm trying to create a custome .adm file to modify the following resitry key:-

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\MaintainServerList

When I add the adm file to group policy editor, I don't get any errors, BUT I also don't see my settings, and I think it's because I'm trying to modify HKLM\System

How do I get this to show in the GPE?

Here's the contents of the adm file
#if version >= 4

CLASS MACHINE

CATEGORY "Added by Me"
    POLICY "Modify Master Browser Settings"
    KEYNAME "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters"
     PART "Maintain Server List" DROPDOWNLIST NOSORT
       VALUENAME "MaintainServerList"
           ITEMLIST
           NAME "Auto" VALUE "Auto"
           NAME "Yes" VALUE "Yes"
           NAME "No" VALUE "No"
           END ITEMLIST
     END PART
    END POLICY
END CATEGORY

#endif

You don't see this because you're writing outside the "policies" key, so this is a "Preferred Setting" or "Tattooing" of the registry, not a "real" policy.
You need to change the View > Filter setting in the GP editor and uncheck "Only show policies that can be fully managed" in order to see these (your setting will be displayed in red instead of the standard blue).
