Local security group policy error

I have a server running server 2008 R2. Exchange 2010 is installed on it.
I recently noticed that this server was not reporting in to WSUS. I tried to have a look at the local group policy settings and I receive the following error when trying to open the local security group policy editor.
"Failed to open the Group Policy Object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights".
In the details it has "The data is invalid"
It appears to be localized to this server only.
Apologies if this has been posted before.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello

This question is more Active Directory/2008 Server than server sofware, but:
You can try the easy suggestions (delete the content of c:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine and rerun gpupdate /force)
Or this version: http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=61042
