I get an error when trying to set software restrictions using the GP management editor. Has anyone seen this before? I attached a screenshot. I tried it on different DC's with same error. Im using 2008 server.

I just did and it didnt work. I can edit anything else in the policy. I also can edit other policies with that setting. Strange.
